The US will host 60 games, including the final possibly at the MetLife stadium in New Jersey, while Mexico and Canada will each have 10 games. However, one of the most important concerns will be the automatic qualification spot. As of now, the host countries for the World Cup get a direct qualification to the Group Stages of the competition. They don’t play their regional qualification matches. And now, FIFA is considering to remove the automatic qualification for 2026 World Cup. Considering there are three host nations, it’ll be a tough ask to grant direct qualification to all the three nations. However, discussions will be made in a couple of years on whether direct qualification be granted to any one of the nations, all three nations or none of them. Mexico and Canada will have three host cities apiece, while the US have submitted a list of 17 host cities. However, the list will be downed to 10 cities as notable hosts, such as Chicago and Vancouver, declined to host matches for various reasons, including cost concerns.
