Statement from Colorado Rapids, Stadium Management Company & Denver Sports Commission
"Today is a big day! We are pleased The United Bid Committee (UBC) has been awarded hosting rights for the 2026 FIFA World Cup. The UBC should be congratulated on all the hard work done to get to this point. This announcement marks the beginning of a lengthy process to determine what cities will host games in the tournament.
Although the final North American host cities will not be announced until as late as 2021, today's decision places Denver among approximately 23 potential host cities under consideration. Denver is a world-class city and soccer destination, and our history of hosting extremely successful international soccer games and our enthusiastic fan base gives us confidence that - if selected - Denver and the region would be excited to see the World Cup take place at the Denver Broncos' stadium. Current studies indicate that host cities can see an economic impact of as much $360 million."
