Seattle gets big soccer news from FIFA. World Cup rounds are coming to town.

Mark your calendars for June 2026 when it all begins at Lumen Field. 6 matches will be played in Seattle. 7 in Vancouver. The final match will be played at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey. Vancouver will host their first match on June 13. Vancouver will host Canada’s final two games of the group stage on June 18 and June 24. Down the road in Seattle, Lumen Field will host four group stage matches, on June 15, 19, 24, and 26. Seattle will also host a Round of 32 match on July 1 and a Round of 16 match on July 6. 

The opening match of the tournament — hosted by the U.S., Mexico and Canada — will be held in Mexico City, with Mexico playing a yet-to-be determined opponent in its group and the remainder of its matches on home soil. This will mark the third time Mexico has hosted World Cup matches, after serving as the host country in 1970 and 1986.

IT’S HERE! 🎊 We are ecstatic to welcome 6 matches of the 2026 FIFA World Cup™ to Seattle.

We can’t wait to bring the World Cup to Seattle and bring Washington to the world. 🌎#weare26 #worldcup26— SeattleFWC26 ⚽️ (@FWC26Seattle) February 4, 2024
