It’s official! The 2026 World Cup schedule has finally been announced! We are SO excited for our city as all eyes will be on us for the biggest, most prestigious sporting event in the world! 

Updated February 2024



AT&T Stadium will be the host of 9 World Cup matches, the most of any city in North America! Although rumors were spreading a few weeks ago by national media organizations, that Dallas would host the final, it was announced on February 4th that we will be the host the Semi-Final, and New York / New Jersey will host the final.

The World Cup will bring a $180 million renovation to AT&T Stadium, and according to Fox 4 News, the Dallas Sports Commission knows that transportation is a top concern for attendees. A plan for buses to and from the stadium was noted in the article. 

Still SUPER exciting for our metroplex and we’re honored to be a part of the biggest stage in sports! It’s a great day to be a Dallasite and the countdown to summer 2026 is on!!



Tickets aren't available yet, but you can register your interest on the FIFA website! Based on previous years, tickets are expected to go on sale sometime around August or September of 2025. Getting tickets usually requires an application process, as tickets are given out by a random lottery. There also are some first come, first serve tickets available though, so be sure to keep an eye out!

Note: FIFA makes it notoriously difficult to resell tickets, so beware of 3rd party websites!



While we anxiously wait for the 2026 World Cup, soccer fans can still get their fix in DFW! There are plenty of spots around town to watch soccer, and you can always hit up an FC Dallas game at Toyota Stadium.
