This week we looked ahead to the World Cup 2026


SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles

This week on Dezeen, we looked ahead to the FIFA World Cup 2026, rounding up the 16 stadiums across the USA, Mexico and Canada that are set to host the games.

Unlike the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar, for which seven out of the eight stadiums were constructed for the event, the 2026 tournament will be held exclusively in venues that are already built.

These include 11 stadiums in the USA, along with two in Canada and three in Mexico.
