Are you planning to visit Kansas City for the FIFA World Cup 2026? Whether you call it football or soccer, we’ll have all the information you need for a great stay in the City of Fountains!

Why Kansas City For FIFA 2026?

Kansas City is not only in the middle of the United States – it’s in the middle of all the 2020 World Cup host cities. That means that Kansas City will provide the easiest access to other cities for visitors needing to move around matches.

Our brand new airport will be prepared to ensure there are an abundance of flights getting you to the other host cities.

This city is a hub of passionate soccer, boasting a storied legacy of successful professional teams. From the Kansas City Spurs in the North American Soccer League to the Comets and Attack in indoor soccer, and now with the esteemed MLS Sporting Kansas City and NWSL KC Current, the tradition lives on.

Where Will Games Be Played?

The matches will be played at the Kansas City Chief’s Arrowhead Stadium. Of all the other host cities, we have the second largest stadium – behind Dallas’ AT&T Stadium.

Another benefit of Kansas City is the soccer venues that will serve as practice fields, including Sporting KC’s stadium and the new Kansas City Current stadium.

Where Will The Fan Village Be Located?

The latest talk for the FIFA Kansas City Fan Village has been either the park at the WWI Museum/Liberty Memorial or Theis Park in front of the Nelson-Atkins Art Museum.

Either way, you can almost count on it being somewhere in downtown or midtown Kansas City.

Which FIFA 2026 Matches Will Be In Kansas City?

Kansas City will be a host city for six matches, including a coveted quarterfinal – just one of four cities to be selected.

In 2026, Kansas City’s group stage matches will take place on June 16th, June 20th, June 25th and June 27th. A Round of 32 match will be played on July 3rd with the Quarterfinal match on July 11th.
