Not really. Mexico and Canada are only hosting 10 games each, USA hosting 80. This will be the first year with the expanded groups, so a lot of games will be played. Also, the Russia WC going on now is just as spread out.

I'm excited; this means I will definitely get to see some WC games live in 2026. The Final may be held at MetLife, which is only a couple hours away from me. I'd love to attend that, but we'll see. Hoping they play games at M&T (Baltimore) which is very close for me. Fedex Field is also not far, so that would work too.

I know you meant 80 total, and 60 in the USA … so IFTFY, as not to confuse casual WC Fans

I should have been more specific … it's the 1st time that 3 countries will host.
I was just in my closet looking for my Brasil Flag -- as I fly it every 4 years --
and came across a shirt I got, from the 2002 Japan/Korea World Cup ;D
