Los Angeles in the Running for World Cup

2026 World Cup

Los Angeles made the first cut in the battle to host the 2026 World Cup. FIFA officials received 41 applications from North American cities, to include cities in Mexico and Canada. After cutting more than five, Los Angeles made it to the second round along with 32 other cities. The bid is part of a join effort from the North American contingent. Should Los Angeles continue to progress through the process then it will join 12 other North American cities in hosting the games.
