In fact, with Canada, Mexico, and the U.S. jointly hosting the 2026 World Cup, Macquarie's Andreas Inderst believes that it will introduce football, erm, I mean soccer, to a wider audience in the U.S., where the beautiful game–despite being the world's favorite–lags in popularity behind other sports. Inderst writes that when the U.S. hosted the 1994 World Cup, it kicked off a "surge" in participation and interest in the sport, and the 2026 games should "raise the profile of US football dramatically," once again boosting participation and sales. This should be a boon for Adidas (ADDYY), which he rates Outperform, given that up to this point, the U.S.'s relative lack of interest in soccer, where the company shines, "has been a key disadvantage to Adidas, in contrast to football-frenzied Europe [and] Latin America." Therefore FIFA's award of the 2026 tournament has " strategic value" to Adidas.
