MONTERREY.— The BBVA stadium in Guadalupe, Nuevo León, could host more matches at the 2026 World Cup than the three matches originally planned for the project, FIFA President Gianni Infantino said in an interview.
All World Cup venues in Mexico, the United States and Canada will host more matches due to the format chosen for the tournament, with the number of matches being 104 instead of the original plan’s 80.
Infantino stated in an interview with TUDN reporter Alonso Cabral that Mexico was only going to receive 10 games, but due to the changes, there will be more and will be announced in the future.
“It will be 10 when there was a plan for 80 games, of course with 104 we are going to have a little bit more in each city in each country,” said the leader of world football’s governing body.

The purpose of placing the logo this way is that each location can personalize it and make it unique from the others, but with a structural association.
Infantino said, “It is a cry…a moment when three countries and an entire continent say in unison: ‘We unite to welcome the world and deliver the biggest, best and most inclusive World Cup in history’.” Are.”
Shortly before 10:00 this Wednesday night, the social networks that manage the content of the 2026 World Cup in Monterrey were created, already showing photos of the state’s famous hills, the bishopric’s flag and the BBVA stadium.
