The host cities for the 2026 FIFA World Cup in Canada, the United States and Mexico will be announced on June 16.

Twenty-two cities entered the selection process, including Toronto (BMO Field), Edmonton (Commonwealth Stadium) and Vancouver (BC Place).

Canada’s initial bid included Montreal, but the city and province withdrew their candidacy in July. Vancouver entered the process in April as a replacement city.
