Dallas among United Bid finalists for 2026 World Cup host cities”

There are four cities in Canada, three in Mexico and 25 cities in the United States on the list. "We will welcome the opportunity to work with Federation Internationale de Football Association to further expand our hosting concept to ensure the broadest possible impact for this spectacular event".

The United Bid Committee announced Wednesday that they have narrowed down North America to 32 potential host cities for the 2026 World Cup.

Cities not selected to host matches may be involved with the 2026 World Cup in other ways such as hosting broadcast centers, team base camps, or other events. This representative finalize hosting documents and show how their city will integrate the United Bid Committee's strategy and vision.

The United Bid Committee representing the three nations' joint bid for the event announced Wednesday that nine cities - seven in the USA, two in Canada - had expressed interest are no longer in the running.

If the bid is successful, the United States would stage 60 matches in about a dozen venues.

If the coalition is awarded the World Cup, at least 12 cities will likely be chosen to host games, officials said.

The World Cup last came to North America in 1994, when the United States hosted and set the average attendance record. Morocco is also in contention to host the tournament.

"The 32 cities that we have identified as potential host cities, on their own and together, are prepared to welcome soccer fans from around the world".

Terry Hasseltine, executive director of Maryland Sports, an agency of the Maryland Stadium Authority, said in August that M&T Bank Stadium is "an ideal venue for the World Cup", but Baltimore faces competition from other larger Mid-Atlantic cities, such as Washington, Philadelphia and NY.
