The 2026 World Cup final will be held at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey on July 19th.

"It's going to be a special World Cup," Berhalter said after the announcement was made. "To have the final in New York, New Jersey is a dream come true for me. Being from that area, and I'm sure for most people from that area, it's an area with a rich tradition of soccer and producing players.

"To think about when I was little, going to watch the [New York] Cosmos and them selling out Giants Stadium, and now this stadium is going to host a World Cup final. It's really special."

The opening match of the tournament will be held in Mexico City and feature Mexico.

The USMNT will play their opener at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California. 

The semifinals will be played on July 14 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, and the following day at Mercedes Benz Stadium in Atlanta.

Quarterfinals will be at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts, on July 9, at SoFi Stadium, the following day, and at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri, and Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida, on July 11. The third-place game will be at Hard Rock on July 18.
