Join the Philadelphia Business Journal as we explore planning efforts leading up with the 2026 World Cup. Philadelphia is one of only 16 North American cities selected by FIFA to host the 2026 World Cup, an event expected to draw 500,000 visitors to the city and generate a regional economic impact of $460 million. Join the Philadelphia Business Journal for a lively discussion with leaders of the local organizing committee and tourism officials who will discuss how the bid was won, what it means for the region, how businesses can get in on the action and what the planning efforts will look like leading up to the big event.
