World Cup 2026 opening match

The opening match of the 2026 World Cup will be played in Los Angeles, Mexico City or New York/New Jersey.

United 2026 plans to have 3 matches played on the opening day of the tournament, with each country hosting its own opening match and ceremony.

The conditions of football association FIFA require that the host country organizes the opening of the tournament, so the organization meets this requirement.

Because the finals of the 1970 and 1986 World Cups were played in Mexico City, and in 1994 in Los Angeles, it gives an extra historical value to the opening games.
