Canada is one of the three host nations for the 2026 FIFA World Cup, along with the United States and Mexico. This will be the first time that three nations have jointly hosted the World Cup, and it is also the first time that the tournament will feature 48 teams instead of the current 32.

Canada will be hosting 10 matches in total, including the opening game and several group stage matches, as well as one match in the round of 16 and one match in the quarterfinals. The venues that have been selected to host the games include:

·      Olympic Stadium in Montreal, Quebec

·      Rogers Centre in Toronto, Ontario

·      BMO Field in Toronto, Ontario

·      Tim Hortons Field in Hamilton, Ontario

Many of these venues have undergone or are in the process of undergoing major upgrades to prepare for the World Cup, including enhancements to seating, media facilities, and security features.

Canada’s hosting of the World Cup is expected to have a significant economic impact on the country, including the creation of jobs and a boost to tourism. It is also seen as an opportunity to showcase Canada’s cultural and entertainment offerings to the world, and to promote the sport of soccer in the country. The Canadian Soccer Association has also stated that hosting the World Cup will provide a legacy of increased participation in soccer among young Canadians, as well as a boost to the country’s sporting infrastructure.

Overall, Canada’s hosting of the 2026 FIFA World Cup is a historic moment for the country and a significant opportunity to showcase its cultural and sporting offerings to the world. It is also expected to have a positive impact on the economy and the development of soccer in the country.
