Football is life” — or it will be in the summer of 2026 when the FIFA World Cup comes to Arlington.

FIFA officials announced the tournament’s full schedule on Sunday + AT&T Stadium will host nine matches, more than any of the 15 venues.

FIFA regulations don’t allow corporate sponsors to represent host venues so AT&T Stadium will be temporarily renamed “Dallas Stadium” for the duration of the tournament.

Despite rumors last month, Arlington will not host the final match, which will be at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey on July 19.

Local matches include:

  • Group stage | June 14, June 17, June 22, June 25, June 27
  • Round of 32 | June 30 + July 3
  • Round of 16 | July 6
  • Semi-final | July 14

Additionally, Frisco’s Toyota Stadium, Dallas’ Fair Park, and Arlington’s Globe Life Field may be used for training.
In case you missed it, Jerry World is undergoing $295 million in renovations to transform the football stadium into a soccer venue.
