"I’ve stated previously that bringing the FIFA World Cup to Seattle is perhaps the biggest moment in the soccer history of our region, but today’s news makes that feeling all the more real. To be hosting FIFA World Cup matches in and of itself is a momentous thing, but to see the United States Men’s National Team playing in the Emerald City on the world’s biggest stage is an honor. As a born-and-bred Seattleite, today’s news is remarkable and has the potential to take our sport to new heights. For every soccer fan in our region, 2026 is going to be really special, and for the fans from across our nation and around the world coming to Seattle, we are eager to welcome you all. On behalf of the city of Seattle and our entire local organizing committee, we cannot wait to begin playing FIFA World Cup matches at Lumen Field in just two years’ time."
