2026 World Cup

FIFA confirms 2026 World Cup spots; 6 for CONCACAF

FIFA has confirmed the number of spots that each football region will be given in the 2026 World Cup, giving CONCACAF 6 positions.

In late March, a FIFA committee recommended a format for how many teams from each confederation should go to the 2026 World Cup.

The process was crucial because that will be the first 48-team World Cup and each confederation was fighting for more of the 12 added spots.

On Tuesday, FIFA approved the committee's recommended allocations. Now the outline for the 2026 World Cup is official.
