The 2026 World Cup Host Committee said in a statement: “As a world-class soccer city with numerous iconic stadiums as well as three incredible professional soccer teams — the Los Angeles area celebrates SoFi Stadium being selected to host the 2026 FIFA World Cup™. We look forward to partnering with FIFA to ensure that the event will deliver tangible, significant, and enduring benefits to the greater Los Angeles community. Our organizations have worked diligently to develop and submit a bid for the Los Angeles area to serve as a host for the 2026 FIFA World Cup™. Our experience when the Rose Bowl hosted the Finals of the 1994 FIFA World Cup™ and 1999 FIFA Women’s World Cup™, as well as the world-class infrastructure, vibrant communities, and our status as one of the nation’s richest soccer cultures set the Los Angeles region apart.”
