There’s a Good Chance The World Cup Will Come to Philly in 2026!

In a recent announcement by the Philadelphia Convention and Visitors Bureau, Philadelphia made the cut of the 23 cities in North America to be considered as host for the 2026 World Cup!  Back in August the list was just short of 50 cities and with the recent cuts, Philadelphia is still in contention!

The World Cup Committee which is looking at Canada, The U.S, & Mexico are considering cities with the ability to accommodate the large crowds including the requirement that the host city be equipped with a stadium able to hold 40,000 people. Luckily for us The Linc can hold just under 70,000 (69,328 to be exact).  Also, The Linc has hosted big time soccer matches in the past, so this would not be a stretch.

So who are we going up against?  Well for the three countries vying for consideration, they include the following:

UNITED STATES

• Foxborough, Massachusetts
• Atlanta, Georgia
• Cincinnati, Ohio
• Denver, Colorado
• East Rutherford, New Jersey
• Arlington, Texas
• Houston, Texas
• Inglewood or Pasadena, California
• Santa Clara, California
• Kansas City, Missouri
• Baltimore, Maryland
• Landover, Maryland
• Miami, Florida
• Nashville, Tennessee
• Orlando, Florida
• Seattle, Washington

MEXICO

• Guadalajara,
• Mexico City
• Monterrey

CANADA

• Edmonton
• Montreal
• Toronto
