TULSA, Oklahoma -

The countdown to World Cup 2026 kicks off on Thursday as soccer fans across Canada, Mexico and the U.S. learn whether their cities are picked to host the 48-team tournament.

Many expect the U.S. to see 10 of their cities to be chosen as candidates, with Los Angeles being highly considered with its new $5.5 billion SoFi Stadium.

Other contenders include former 1994 World Cup host cities Boston, Dallas, San Francisco, Orlando and Washington D.C., which combined its bid with Baltimore this year.

A U.S. Soccer study said the tournament could generate more than $5 billion in economic activity in North America.
