The 2026 World Cup Final is reportedly set to take place at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
Of the 16 venues across the USA, Mexico and Canada, the stadium – home to the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys – is the most likely contender to host the final, alongside MetLife Stadium in New Jersey. FIFA will officially announce which ground will host that historic match on February 4, as well as the match schedule.
Despite the fact that the location hasn’t been fully confirmed, the high likelihood of a World Cup final in the Dallas-Fort Worth area has been running through the rumour mill for a few months now. Reports of AT&T Stadium hosting the match began shortly after SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles was no longer a viable option.
Everything’s bigger in Texas, and the 105,000 capacity stadium should prove the perfect location for one of the biggest matches of the decade. With the tournament preparing to bring some much needed big wins to the Cowboys’ home, 2026 might be the only time a World Cup final is played in a stadium shaped like a football – even if it is the American kind.
