The first months of 2024 have been bitter for Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones. Last Sunday, January 14, the team fell to the Green Bay Packers in the Wild Card Round of the playoffs despite being huge favorites to win and now lost out on the opportunity to host the 2026 FIFA World Cup final.
On February 4, the schedule for the 2026 FIFA World Cup, which will be held jointly across the United States, Mexico and Canada, was announced. AT&T Stadium was the favorite to host the final, but lost to MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
New York will host the World Cup final
The home of the New York Giants and the New York Jets will see the world soccer champion crowned on Sunday, July 19, 2026.
AT&T Stadium will have to settle for the fact of being the only venue to host nine games of this prestigious competition and to host one of the two semifinals of the tournament.
