Do You Live in a U.S. City That Might Host the 2026 World Cup?

11. Jacksonville, Florida

  • Stadium: EverBank Field
  • Seating capacity: 67,246

The last of three Florida cities to appear on the list, Jacksonville has a lot going for it. The capacity of EverBank Field and its grass surface are big pluses. The fact that it’s another Florida city would either be a big plus or a huge negative. On the plus side, the World Cup games could be scheduled in a way where teams could play multiple games in Florida, thereby lessening the travel. The negative would be keeping visiting teams and their fans in one corner of the country and not spreading the wealth.

Next: Steel City could be a site.
