Light Up Miami: 2026 World Cup

The United Bid Committee, on behalf of United States, Canada, and Mexico, submitted a historic United Bid in March 2018 to host the 2026 FIFA World Cup.  United2026’s bid includes Miami among 23 cities competing to be one of the final 16 Host Cities—all of which have a proven track record of hosting successful international sporting events.

The 68th FIFA Congress takes place Wednesday, June 13, 2018 in Moscow, Russia. The Congress begins at 2:00 am ET and the 2026 FIFA World Cup is expected to be awarded between 5:00 am and 7:00 am ET. The event will be livestreamed on FIFA.com.

The 2026 FIFA World Cup is expected to be the largest ever played with some 1,100 players from 48 countries competing in 80 matches. The last World Cup, played in 2014, reached an in-home audience of 3.2 billion with more than one billion viewers tuning in to the final match between Argentina and Germany.
