The Dallas Sports Commission, the Dallas Cowboys, and FC Dallas recently announced that Dallas will be bidding to host the 2026 FIFA World Cup. The event will have a total of 80 matches which will include 60 in the USA, 10 in Mexico, and 10 in Canada. The event will consist of 48 national teams. Dallas is one of the 17 cities bidding to be able to host the event. Other candidate cities include Boston, Orlando, Houston, and Miami. Before a decision is made, FIFA will visit each place to see what will be the best fit. Monica Paul, executive director of the Dallas Sports Commission, thinks that Dallas is ready for this big step. “We are also thrilled that Dallas will have the possibility to welcome the world and put our passion for soccer on display for the greatest global sporting event,” Paul said in a release. “We have been working on this bid for over a year and look forward to the next step in the process to ensure Dallas is a host city.”
