NEW YORK (AP) — FIFA plans to announce the 2026 World Cup sites, trimming the U.S. list from 17 to 10-12 on Thursday. KMBC in Kansas City is reporting that Arrowhead Stadium has made the cut.

Three sites are planned in Mexico and two are likely in Canada. In the first 48-nation World Cup, soccer's governing body planned 60 games in the U.S., including all from the quarterfinals on, and 10 each in Mexico and Canada.

Just two of the contending stadiums hosted games in 1994, Pasadena's Rose Bowl joined by Orlando's Camping World Stadium. Dozens of training complexes have been built for MLS teams, creating a far better infrastructure.
