- Figure out transportation services early on — Knowing where the host cities are is an important part of your summer of 2026 plans. Make sure to figure out all your transportation services throughout the summer so you’re ready to maximize your game watching experience. There are national airports located across 31 states and currently 17 potential host cities to keep an eye out for. By the time the Cup begins, that number will be cut down to 10. Rent a bus for special bus tours to these major cities, work with shuttle services to maximize the amount of distance you can cover, and start planning right away!
- Pay attention to national teams — Though the World Cup only happens over the course of a few weeks, the competition is seemingly always going on. There are national teams playing extremely hard every time they take the field and at any moment a team’s World Cup chances can fall apart of succeed. Start watching as much soccer as you can so you can have an idea of who’s going to play in 2026.
