Minneapolis considered as a possible site for matches in 2026

B.C. Place would be the venue if Vancouver is awarded any matches in the tournament | BIV archives

The United Bid Committee for the 2026 FIFA World Cup bid have released a list of 49 potential World Cup venues identified by the bid committee, with two DFW venues named.

Each contender on the nation's list of 34 cities and 37 stadiums - Dallas has two possible venues and Los Angeles has three - must confirm its interest by September 5 to the United Bid Committee, the three-nation organization coordinating the bid. Preparations on the final bid will begin in January and the formal application will be sent to Federation Internationale de Football Association on March 16, 2018.

If a city is not picked to host matches, they could host team base camps or events like the Preliminary or Final Draw. The United Bid Committee, which is coordinating the North American proposal, released their longlist of 46 potential host cities that include Toronto, New York and Vancouver. Still, the USSF says it's large enough to host a group stage match - just not the opener or the final.

Other Canadian cities on the list include: Montreal, Ottawa, Regina, Toronto and Vancouver. The first sporting event ever held at the stadium was a 2016 International Champions Cup match between A.C. Milan and Chelsea F.C.


Officials from each city are being asked to provide information including their city's transportation infrastructure, past experience with major sporting and cultural events and accommodations that would be available.

Morocco is the only other nation that has declared its intention to submit a 2026 bid. At least 12 locations could ultimately host games. The deadline for bids to submit their interest was on Monday, and the winning bid will be decided at the FIFA Congress in June 2018.

There will be 80 matches at that World Cup as it expands to 48 teams.

NRG Stadium in Houston and the Alamo Dome in San Antonio are also on the list.
