It’s official: the FIFA World Cup is coming to Atlanta! The 2026 FIFA World Cup will be the largest edition of the world’s most popular sporting event yet and the Mercedes-Benz stadium has been chosen to host.
“Our stadium was built to host world-class events, and we are honored to continue that tradition in 2026 with the World Cup” said Arthur M. Blank, Owner and Chairman of The Blank Family of Businesses, including Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
As Atlanta’s Mayor Andre Dickens put it best, “Atlanta is a soccer town…. And we will welcome folks from all over the world to fill every seat in Mercedes-Benz Stadium in 2026.”
LONG provided services including Land Surveying, Civil Engineering/Site Design, Utility Coordination & Design, and Construction Staking to the development of the Mercedes-Benz stadium. We are incredibly excited to see one of our projects being used to its fullest potential.
