Logo unveiled for 2026 World Cup to be hosted by USA, Mexico and Canada

At a ceremony held at the Griffith Observatory in downtown Los Angeles, the logo for the 2026 World Cup, which will be jointly hosted by the United States, Mexico and Canada, was unveiled.

The design chosen is a number 26 arranged vertically and the figure of the World Cup in the middle. FIFA President Gianni Infantino and Brazilian Ronaldo were in charge of unveiling it.

#WeAre26 (#Somos26), the official campaign for the 2026 World Cup
The three host countries of the 2026 World Cup last Thursday presented the #WeAre26 (#Somos26) campaign, “an action that encourages people, municipalities and communities to actively participate in the presentation.”

The campaign includes photographs and illustrations of important World Cup venues that “look forward to fans in 2026 and invite the world to be part of #Somos26.”

“The Official Brand offers fans an entirely new emblem, typeface and color palette, three exciting elements that will bring the tournament to life for months and years to come,” FIFA said.

“The brand highlights the unique aspects and inclusive and diverse nature of the first 48-team World Cup,” announced Romi Guy, Director of the FIFA Commercial Division. In addition, FIFA created custom branding for each of the 16 host cities “in an unprecedented effort to unite the fans and cultures of Canada, Mexico and the United States”.

For some years it was known that 48 would be selected for the next World Cup in Qatar, rather than the 32 present, but the format had yet to be made official, which had happened at the previous FIFA Congress.

Although there was speculation about a format of 16 groups of three teams, in the end they selected 12 zones from four countries, where the first two from each and the eight best third sides would qualify for the round of 16 with direct elimination from there. which would guarantee that each team would play at least three games and the four semi-finalists would play a total of eight games.

Thus, the number of matches will increase significantly, from 80 with the 16-group format to 104 with the 12-group format. Thus, giving players enough rest between games, the duration of the tournament will be 40 days will be extended.

In addition, it has already been determined that the Grand Final of the 2026 World Cup in the United States, Canada and Mexico will be played on Sunday, July 19, and the clubs will have a deadline for the mandatory release of the mentioned footballers on Monday, on 25 May, except for those competing in the finals, who may release them on the 30th of the same month upon request by FIFA.
