What can the 2026 do for the US Soccer?
The next World Cup, in 2026, will be held in three countries simultaneously; Mexico, Canada and United States.
In addition, one more novelty for this tournament is that there will be even more teams and games, since FIFA decided to expand the number of National squads to 48, previously there were only 32.
But what good can this do for the US?
The last World Cup, in Qatar, involved around 220 billion dollars, according to a survey made by the Qatari government. An investment in this type of event can generate very high profits for the countries involved, in addition to generating an even greater tourist circulation.
However, let's talk about the sports benefits. Soccer has been growing more and more in the United States, becoming one of the most popular sports for children in recent years. The main national league, Major League Soccer (MLS) has been generating high revenues and bringing great players from the world stage. Good examples of this were the passages of Kaká, Ibrahimovic, Carlos Vela, Chicharito Hernandez, among other stars who play or have played in North American lands.
In fact, this growth of soccer around here has already shown an impressive sporting result; The Seattle Sounders were crowned Concacaf champions, becoming the first US club to win that tournament in history.
That is, with the World Cup coming up, investment in the sport will be even greater. More visibility for our teams on the international scene and better ownership of brands and clubs in soccer.
Partnerships are already being made, names speculated and money being injected so that, one day, men's Soccer will be one of the greatest powers in the world.
