In 2026, the FIFA World Cup™ comes to the U.S for 30 days of raucous cheers, joyful chants, and elite competition. 17 cities are bidding for the privilege to host matches but only 10 will be chosen. From political conventions to Pope Francis to the NFL Draft, Philadelphia knows how to shine on the biggest stages under the brightest lights. But it’s our passion, intensity, and devotion to sports - our love of the game, whatever the game is - which sets us apart. Join our growing team to show FIFA that Philadelphia is ready for this moment.
