On Thursday, June 16th, FIFA announces the 10 U.S. cities selected to host 2026 World Cup matches – the largest World Cup tournament in history – and Philadelphia plans to be one of them. Join us in LOVE Park from 3 – 6 PM on June 16th to watch the official announcement from FIFA and celebrate our Philly passion one more time as a FIFA World Cup 2026™ Candidate Host City.
Thanks to a city-wide effort from sports organizations, Philadelphians, soccer fans, and local businesses, no one has made a better case to FIFA than we have. Philadelphia Soccer 2026, the city’s official World Cup bid committee, is having a watch party to recognize the day in LOVE Park. Our case to host games is strong – no one hosts big events like Philadelphia.
Whether we’re getting ready to host the NFL Draft or the Papal Visit, the brightest lights are where our city does its best. Lincoln Financial Field is ready to host games and show the world what Philly is all about.
