FIFA has awarded the exclusive rights to the FIFA World Cup 2026™ to broadcasters in each of the Nordic territories: DR and TV2 in Denmark, YLE and MTV in Finland, TV2 and NRK in Norway, and SVT and TV4 in Sweden.

With iconic venues, passionate supporters and a wealth of experience in delivering world-class entertainment events, the host countries will provide an unrivalled platform to celebrate the game and its ability to connect and inspire people around the world.

For the first time, the FIFA World Cup 2026™ will feature 48 participating teams (previously 32), offering more teams than ever the chance to participate in football’s most prestigious global competition.

FIFA’s Director of Media Rights & Content Services, Jean-Christophe Petit said, “The expanded FIFA World Cup 2026 in North America is set to be an unforgettable event for football fans everywhere. We are pleased to be able to extend our partnership with the leading Nordic broadcasters, who provide strong platforms to ensure the best possible viewing experience for the largest audience.”
