The 2026 FIFA World Cup is the 23rd FIFA World Cup, the final part of which will be held in the summer of 2026. Initially, 32 teams were supposed to participate in the final stage of the championship as usual, but on January 10, 2017, FIFA President Gianni Infantino announced the decision to increase the number of participants to 48. Thus, this will be the first World Cup in the XXI century, held under the new regulations.
Each city will house a group of three teams. Thus, in the final part there will be 16 groups, three teams in each.
At the moment, only host teams have qualified for the World Cup, with 45 places remaining vacant.
