Question: Between watching the last World Cup and FIFA's recent destination announcement, I really want to attend a tournament. How do I go about getting tickets to the World Cup in 2026?
US-based Lonely Planet writer John Garry: It's easy to understand why anyone who saw the World Cup in Qatar would catch a case of footy fever: the non-stop, unscripted drama of serious soccer playing is more nail-biting than anything you'll find on Netflix. The coronation of Lionel Messi as World Cup king was the stuff of legends. The surprise success of Morocco will be remembered for decades to come. There's a reason the World Cup is the world's most-watched sporting event.
But if you want to get tickets to FIFA's 2026 World Cup, you'll have to wait.
“Information regarding ticketing for the FIFA World Cup 2026 will be available in due course,” says FIFA's website. “Please check this page regularly for further updates.”

Still, there's plenty to consider while waiting for tickets to drop. FIFA recently announced where the upcoming games will take place – and it's never too early to start making travel plans.
Unlike the 2022 Qatar World Cup, which scored millions of international viewers in November and December 2022, the next tournament will return to its usual summer slot. The tournament will last from June 11 to July 19, 2026.
Games will kick off in 16 cities across North America, and for the first time in World Cup history, they'll span three countries. Canada will host for the first time, the US will host for the second, and Mexico will become the first country to host the World Cup three times.
The majority of matches will take place across the US, with 11 cities represented: Atlanta (eight games), Boston (seven games), Dallas (nine games), Houston (seven games), Kansas City (six games), Los Angeles (eight games), Miami (seven games), New York (eight games), Philadelphia (six games), San Francisco (six games), and Seattle (six games).
The remaining matches will be split between Mexico's Guadalajara (four games), Mexico City (five games) and Monterrey (four games), along with Canada's Toronto (six games) and Vancouver (seven games).
Soccer is improvisational – it's challenging to forecast which games will make it into the pantheon of football favorites. But to ensure a festive atmosphere, consider visiting a city hosting the tournament's most spectacular events.
For the opening match, plan a trip to Mexico City around Thursday, June 11, when international teams will square off against one another at the Estadio Azteca.

It’s Willy Wonka’s Golden Ticket competition of 2024. Marriott Bonvoy is offering members of its loyalty scheme the chance to see Taylor Swift’s Eras tour. And you don’t have to work out ways to get enough Bonvoy points to be the highest bidder; it’s a sweepstake which means anyone can win. Winners will be picked at random - a good thing. Less great is that the odds against you winning are huge.
Historically, Disney World ticket price increases have been fairly predictable. Whether we wanted it to or not, about once a year, Disney would announce an incremental price increase that typically went into effect soon after the announcement. However, Disney has not raised ticket prices since 2022, when it announced two increases in the same year.
A popular port of call for cruisers or daytime stop for French Riviera travelers, Monte-Carlo offers so much more than a quick diversion on a longer trip. The principality sandwiched between France and Italy offers luxury accommodations, fine dining, an incredible, palm-tree adorned setting on the coast, and top notch hospitality. With an almost nonexistent crime rate, a distinct local culture, 300+ days of sun per year and hoards of attractions, ranging from luxe beaches to lounge on to top rated restaurants, Monte-Carlo may be the best home base for your next getaway on the Côte d'Azur.
In July 2026, the FIFA World Cup is coming to North America, with games played in Mexico, the United States, and Canada. The World Cup is held every four years and is one of the largest, if not the largest, sporting events in the world. Sixteen cities will host the 48 teams. But where the biggest game will take place, the final, won’t officially be announced until February 4.
When I was a teenager, I watched a TV documentary about a frozen human body that had been discovered at the summit of Mount Ampato in Peru. Dubbed “Juanita” or the Incan ice mummy, this girl had been a human sacrifice, killed in about 1450 at the age of 14 or so – the same age I was. Her body had mummified, preserved in the permafrost, which meant her clothes, her hair, even her stomach, containing her last meal, were all still intact.
Velana International Airport in Male is the gateway for most visitors to the island-nation of the Maldives. As you disembark, take in a delicious blast of salty sea air and glimpse the tantalizing turquoise waters.
While North America is home to its fair share of fascinating animals—the grizzly bear, American bison and American alligator, to name a few—this sprawling nation is no slouch when it comes to plantlife, either. Across the colder reaches of the continent, the icy grip of winter is beginning to thaw, ushering in a new round of colorful flowers for tourists to admire. From native superblooms to carefully-manicured lavender gardens, the following regions offer a spectacular array of flora that are perfect for a memorable spring vacation.
Unlike many in the hospitality and tourism space, who spend their career working solely in one particular facet of the business, I have been fortunate and have been able to change verticals several times. At ICON Park, it was attractions and restaurants; at Universal Parks, it was resort hotels and theme parks; as a board member at the Grand Canyon Resort, I helped promote an area of extreme natural wonder.
Currently, Greece ranks extremely high as an attractive target for foreign investors looking for visas through real estate investment thanks to a confluence of factors that includes narrowing alternatives in the rest of Europe, a resurgent Greek economy and a relatively low minimum threshold for acquiring property.
