MetLife Stadium, host of the New York Jets and Giants American football teams, located precisely in East Rutherford in New Jersey (west of Manhattan), was preferred to Dallas and Los Angeles, other cities considered to host the final.

Canada will play its first match in Toronto on June 12 and the United States in Los Angeles at SoFi Stadium the same day, before playing in Seattle, Fifa announced through Gianni Infantino during a televised ceremony in the presence of including comedian Kevin Hart, rapper Drake and star Kim Kardashian.

The match for 3rd place will take place in Miami, where superstar Lionel Messi has been playing at Inter Miami since last year. The Argentine, aged 36, winner of the previous edition in Qatar in December 2022, has not closed the door to a presence in 2026.
