The North American 2026 World Cup bid committee have released the 23 cities available for hosting duties during the event.
The 17 of the cities are in the United States with three each from Mexico and Canada, with the committee finalizing the selections ahead of Friday’s submission deadline.
The 23 were selected from an original list of 44 cities. Should FIFA select the joint-three country bid for the 2026 games, the international governing body will further trim the list down to 16.
Two big omissions from the list are Chicago, which is the home of U.S. Soccer’s headquarters, and Vancouver, which hosted the 2015 Women’s World Cup Final.
Both cities withdrew from consideration with announcements earlier Thursday.
For the United States, Atlanta, Baltimore, Boston, Cincinnati, Dallas, Denver, Houston, Kansas City, Los Angeles, Miami, Nashville, New Jersey/New York, Orlando, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Seattle and Washington D.C. are the cities selected.
