Mexico is confident that FIFA will confirm the establishment of three stadiums in 2026 | Sports

Mexico is confident that next month FIFA will give it three sub-sites for the 2026 World Cup, the president of the Mexican Federation, Yon de Luisa, said on Wednesday.

As co-hosts, the Mexicans proposed the BBVA Stadium in Monterrey, in the north, as sub-sites; Akron in Guadalajara in the west, and Azteca in the capital, to host the World Cup matches that it will share with the United States and Canada.

The world’s top soccer body will announce stadiums in the three countries on June 16.

“We are grateful to the stadiums and to the governments that have shown their support, as well as the full support of the federal government,” said de Luisa, president of the Mexican Football Federation. “We are confident that the three proposed stadiums will be accepted as venues for the 2026 World Cup.”

The three cities proposed by Mexico were already hosts in the 1970 and 1986 World Cups, although there are currently proposed stadiums, only the Azteca will host World Cup matches for the third time in their history.

Local football leaders have already announced that the stage will be remodeled from next year.

Although the World Cup will be shared between the three nations, in the original plan submitted to FIFA, most matches would take place in the United States, around sixty, while the Canadians and Mexicans would have 10 each.

Canada, like Mexico, offered three stadiums: Commonwealth Stadium in Edmonton; BMO Stadium in Toronto and BC Place Stadium in Vancouver.

The FIFA committee has already visited everywhere before the elections.
