Mexico will host a total of 13 matches for the 2026 World Cup, which will be held with the United States and Canada, with 10 in the group stage and three in the final or elimination phase.

The tournament has a new format with an increase in participants from 32 to 48, making it the biggest World Cup in history with a total of 104 matches.

This Sunday, it was confirmed that the Azteca Stadium in Mexico City will be the venue where the championship will open on June 11, 2026, a fact that further increases its status as a historic soccer field, as it is the first in the world to inaugurate a World Cup three times.
