Concacaf, football’s governing body in North America, Central America and the Caribbean, has announced that AT&T Stadium, home of the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys, will host its Nations League Finals in March next year.
AT&T Stadium will host the semi-finals, third place match and final of the competition. Toyota Stadium, home of Major League Soccer team FC Dallas, will host the play-in matches.
The semi-finals will take place on March 21, with the third place match and final scheduled for March 24. AT&T Stadium will be the third host of the Concacaf Nations League Finals, after Denver’s Empower Field at Mile High staged in 2021 and Las Vegas’ Allegiant Stadium hosted earlier this year.
AT&T Stadium will be a host venue during the 2026 FIFA World Cup, which the US will stage alongside Canada and Mexico. The stadium is one of the favourites to land the World Cup final, alongside MetLife Stadium and SoFi Stadium.
Victor Montagliani, Concacaf president, said: “The Concacaf Nations League is an integral part of the Concacaf men’s national team calendar and continues to have a hugely positive impact on the development of the game in our region.
“The competition provides a consistent set of matches across the FIFA windows and, as we head towards the latter stages of the third edition, I must praise our 41 federations and their teams for their hard work and commitment to this competition.”
The quarter-finals of the Concacaf Nations League, which will be played as home-and-away fixtures, will take place over the next week. The aggregate score winner in each quarter-final pairing will advance to the Finals and also qualify for next year’s Copa América, while the losers will progress to the Nations League play-in, which will determine the last two Concacaf guest national teams qualifying for the Copa América.
The first two editions of the Concacaf Nations League Finals have been won by the US.
