In the summer of 2023, Levi’s Stadium played host to two of the biggest pop stars, BEYONCÉ and Taylor Swift, in the world.

In 2026, it’ll play host to some of the biggest soccer stars in the world.

FIFA revealed pieces of its 2026 World Cup schedule, with the home of the San Francisco 49ers hosting six games.

The 2026 tournament also introduces big changes to how the tournament is held. For the first time ever, the games will take place in three countries — Canada, United States and Mexico — with an expansion of 48 teams. The 2022 World Cup games in Qatar is hosting 32 teams.

Levi’s Stadium will see five Group Stage matches — scheduled for June 13, 16, 19, 22, and 25 — and one match in the Round of 32 — scheduled for July 1.

Who will play isn’t expected to be decided until December 2025. However, we do know that the US Men’s National Team will play three games between Los Angeles and Seattle.

The 2026 World Cup will commence in Mexico City and conclude at the home of the New York Jets and Giants, MetLife Stadium.
