New York Hosts The 2026 World Cup Final

MIAMI, United States: The final match of the 2026 World Cup will be held in New York on the website of the American football teams, the New York Giants and the New York Jets, world soccer’s governing body FIFA announced earlier this morning.

The 48-team World Cup, which ends July 19 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, is co-hosted by the United States, Canada and Mexico.

Canada will host 13 matches in total, including 10 in the group stage held between Toronto and Vancouver.

Mexico also got 13 matches, including 10 in the group stage in Mexico City, Guadalajara and Monterrey.

The remaining matches in the tournament will be held in 11 US cities.

Toronto, Mexico City and Los Angeles will host the opening matches for each of their respective national teams.

The final’s open-air stadium, which opened in 2010 and has a capacity of 82,500, hosted the Copa America Centenario final in 2016 when Chile denied Lionel Messi and Argentina a second time through penalty kicks.

FIFA however does not announce the kick-off for each match.

The 2026 World Cup will feature 104 matches instead of the traditional 64 matches, including the addition of a knockout round following the previous announcement increasing the number of teams to 48 from 32.
