Jerry World is hosting the biggest game in the world.
It was reported on Thursday that the Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, is set to become the host of the 2026 FIFA World Cup final.
According to the report from The Sun’s Martin Lipton, the venue was chosen by FIFA officials over New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium, home of the New York Jets and New York Giants.
The city of Arlington is also said to have been chosen as the “main base” for all tournament festivities between the months of June and July. They would have been chosen over the city of Miami (hosts of the 2024 Copa America) and New York.
When and if the venue is confirmed as the host of the final, “Jerry World” will become the first-ever indoor stadium (retractable roof) to host the World Cup Final.
The venue is also confirmed to be part of the upcoming 2024 Copa America, with the Texan stadium set to host the USMNT in their group stage match against Bolivia this June.
AT&T Stadium is one of 11 U.S. stadiums chosen as hosts for the major international tournament in 2026, with the Cowboys’ stadium being the largest of the list with a bid-book capacity of 93,000 and an expandable capacity of 105,000 fans.
We’re in for a show, ladies and gentleman.
