Whenever fans of the US Men’s National Team dream of seeing the team lift the World Cup trophy in 2026, they may have to dream of the ceremony taking place in Texas. ESPN’s John Sutcliffe reports that the 2026 World Cup final will be held at his AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
New York or Los Angeles for the 2026 World Cup final?

Affectionately known as JerryWorld, AT&T Stadium is home to the Dallas Cowboys and a favorite venue for one of the tournament’s late games. However, MetLife Stadium, home of the New York Giants and New York Jets, is speculated to be the most likely to host the finals, given that the New York and New Jersey metro area is the largest in the United States. His SoFi Stadium, home of the LA Rams and LA Chargers, was also a favorite. However, SoFi has some concerns about the size of the field, and in midsummer he’s outdoors in MetLife can bring extreme heat to the photo.
With a retractable roof, JerryWorld can improve environmental control for World Cup finals in hot climates. Also, because it’s in the middle of the country, it sets up the possibility that the semi-finals could take place in Los Angeles and either New York/New Jersey or Philadelphia, with the winners coming together in the middle to play for the world title. It can accommodate people and has the potential to expand to 100,000 people. It will be difficult to reach 100,000 because the World Cup will require all seats, but he could exceed 80,000 for the World Cup final.
