The governing body of soccer increased the size of the 2026 World Cup by approving a bigger group stage for the inaugural 48-team event. The new format will have 12 groups of four teams instead of 16 groups of three. It guarantees every World Cup team will play a minimum of three times, adding up to a stacked group stage totaling 72 games before arriving at the knockout rounds. The four semifinalists will play eight matches, one more than last year in Qatar. The 2026 World Cup hosted by Canada, the United States and Mexico, was already set to earn up to $3 billion in ticket and hospitality sales for FIFA.
