Atlanta is a city proud of all their sports team! Now we have even more to celebrate. We have just been selected to host one of the most-watched sports events of the year, the FIFA world cup. In 2026 Atlanta will host this momentous event. Atlanta is among 11 cities in the U.S. selected to host matches.
Atlanta will become only the second city in the U.S. to have hosted a Summer Olympics, Super Bowl, and World Cup. Atlanta has been a city that has continued to grow culturally. It only makes sense that our diverse city was chosen to host this sports event. Soccer has continued to be a popular sport in the Atlanta community. With our own local team continuing to excel, we are only too happy to have the FIFA World Cup in our own backyard!
