Miami was chosen as a host city for another global event - the 2026 FIFA World Cup! Up to six matches will be held at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens.
“The Hard Rock Stadium campus is a global entertainment destination reflective of the dynamic and international culture of Miami,” said Tom Garfinkel, Vice Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Miami Dolphins and Hard Rock Stadium. “We are excited to showcase our community on a worldwide stage and deliver an amazing experience and best in class event for players and fans.”
The 2026 World Cup will be held in cities across the United States, Canada and Mexico. Miami was one of 16 U.S. locations that bid to host the matches that will take place in June and July 2026.
The Hard Rock Stadium was built according to FIFA specifications and has hosted several marquee international matches over the years. Most notably, it was the site of a 2017 edition of El Clásico. This matchup between Real Madrid and FC Barcelona was the highest-grossing soccer match ever to take place in North America.
It won't be until 2023 when we will know many games or which rounds will be hosted in Miami.
