When soccer's biggest showdown returns to America for the first time in three decades for the 2026 FIFA World Cup jointly hosted by the United States, Canada, and Mexico, scoring a ticket to even one of the 80 matches may not be a realistic goal.

The international competition will feature 48 nations and 80 games, an increase from the 32-team/64-game system that had been in place since 1998, and matchups will take place across 16 venues — 11 in the U.S., three in Mexico, and two in Canada — generating billions of dollars of revenue.
