The World Cup 2026 is one of the most iconic events in sports. The FIFA World Cup, held every four years, will be held for the first time in 2026 in three countries and the number of participating teams will be increased to 48 this year.

Meaning and history

The 2026 FIFA World Cup is unusual in several ways. The 2026 tournament will feature 48 teams – 45 qualifying countries, plus the three host nations of the United States, Canada, and Mexico. It is the largest expansion that has ever taken place: since 1930, 13 teams have participated in the World Cup, in 1954 it became 16, in 1982 it became 24, and in 1998 they adopted the format we are accustomed to with 32 teams.

48 teams will be divided into 12 groups of four each. First and second places will go out of the groups directly, but those who finish in third place will be ranked based on points, goal differences, and other indicators, if necessary. Only eight teams – a total of 32 national teams – will advance to the next stage. After that, a playoff grid will be formed.

FIFA says the tournament will last as long as 2010, 2014, and 2018 World Cups – a total of 56 days. But that takes into account the preparation period, which is now 14 days. The 2026 World Cup itself will last 39 days – a week longer than the 2010, 2014, and 2018 World Cups, and 10 days longer than the tournament in Qatar.

The 2026 FIFA World Cup for the first time in history will be held in three countries at once. Previously, the competition has been held only once in two countries – in 2002, the World Cup was hosted by Japan and South Korea.

It is described as “a celebration of soccer and diversity.”

The image of the trophy and the year of the tournament allows it to be used in a way that reflects the uniqueness of each new tournament while creating a recognizable brand structure for years to come,” FIFA said on its website.
