- Vancouver was chosen as one of 16 host cities in Canada, the U.S., and Mexico.
- The city of Vancouver and local delegates celebrate as Vancouver is picked as one of the 16 host cities for the FIFA 2026 men’s World Cup.
There were fist pumps and fireworks at B.C. Place Stadium when Vancouver was chosen as one of 16 host cities for the 2026 FIFA men’s World Cup the previous week.
But now that the joys have reduced and the giddy politicians have gone home, the question remains: how many matches will Vancouver get?
Canada has been given 10 in total, so with Toronto’s BMO Field cutting, a 50/50 division would seem appropriate.
But B.C. The place is a more giant arena than BMO Field, with 15,000 more seats. More seats mean more ticket sales and income, leading some to assume Vancouver could eventually be awarded six matches to Toronto’s four. The official announcement will be made at a future date.
