The FIFA World Cup 2026, set to be hosted across three North American nations—Canada, Mexico, and the United States—promises to be a landmark event in the history of international football. This edition will not only be the first to feature an expanded 48-team format but also the first to be hosted by three countries simultaneously. 

As anticipation builds, the first edition of the official list of base camps for the participating teams has been unveiled, showcasing a diverse array of top-tier training facilities and accommodations across the continent. These base camps are strategically chosen to provide optimal conditions for preparation and recovery, ensuring that the world’s elite footballers can perform at their peak. 

If you’re interested in finding out which training sites and hotels have been confirmed, Wego provides a list of confirmed team base camps for the FIFA World Cup 2026 in this article.

Hotels where World Cup teams are staying

Set to occur from 11 June 2026 to 19 July 2026, the first edition of FIFA World Cup’s Team Base Camp brochure has been revealed, which highlights 24 top-tier sites. In the upcoming 18 months, this list will expand to include additional choices in Canada, Mexico, and the USA.

Teams will evaluate various options before making their final decision, which they will submit after the FIFA World Cup 26 Final Draw. Expected to occur in late 2025, the draw will indicate the geographic areas where teams will compete in their group matches, helping them finalize their Team Base Camp locations.

Furthermore, the Team Base Camps brochure features nine cities outside the designated Host Cities: Chattanooga, Cincinnati, Green Bay, Irvine, Louisville, St. Louis, Salt Lake City, San Antonio, and Westfield.

Hotel bookings for World Cup fans

As football fans eagerly await the opening of FIFA World Cup 2026 ticket sales, many are already beginning to plan their travel itineraries and hotel bookings, particularly around the newly announced base camps. 

With base camps spread across the vast landscapes of Canada, Mexico, and the United States, the logistics of traveling between matches will be a crucial consideration for supporters. Cities such as Toronto, Mexico City, Los Angeles, and Miami are among the key locations where teams will be based, each offering a wealth of accommodation options ranging from budget-friendly hotels to luxury resorts. 

However, the expansive geography of North America means that traveling between stadiums can vary in difficulty. For instance, fans might find it relatively easy to navigate between East Coast cities like Boston and New York, thanks to well-developed transport networks. Conversely, moving between distant venues such as Vancouver and Guadalajara could present more of a challenge, requiring careful planning and potentially longer travel times. 

Nevertheless, the diverse cultural experiences and the opportunity to explore multiple countries add a unique dimension to this World Cup, making the journey as memorable as the matches themselves.
