Anything worth doing is worth doing throughout 16 cities.
FIFA announced its slate of locations for the 2026 World Cup, which is destined to be something of a spectacle.
In what is a first for the iconic event, the field is being widened as is the locale. The entirety of the World Cup will be spread out among three countries across the continent.
As previously noted, instead of a 32-team tournament, we will get to root on 48 squads. It’s also historic for the fact that three countries will welcome the world to the beautiful game.
The New York Times’ James Wagner inquired as to the biggest question: Where would the finals minutes of the 2026 World Cup take place.
“Asked when and where the 2026 World Cup final will be held, Gianni Infantino, the FIFA president, demurred and said, ‘We will take our time with the decision.’”
He continued, “Officials from the joint New York/New Jersey bid had a feeling they would be one of the 16 cities selected, and they are already prepared to push for the right to host the final.”
One has to think that with infrastructure and fanbase on their side, Los Angeles and Guadalajara make sense as cities to host the waning moments of what is sure to be an unforgettable tournament.
