Human Rights Plan
Our Human Rights Plan for the 2026 FIFA World Cup aims to leverage the World Cup impact for future local efforts and policies, maintaining responsibility for the impact hosting the 2026 World Cup has on World Cup events, and committing North Texas to community building through sport at both the local and global levels.
The greater metro region includes ten counties, including the principal cities of Dallas, Fort Worth, Arlington, Frisco, Plano, Irving, and Denton. Dallas alone is home to more than 1.3 million residents. North Texas is rapidly growing, with a 20% growth rate over the last decade, totaling more than 7.5+ million residents. We have many outstanding features, including one of the world’s busiest transportation hubs and the headquarters of two dozen Fortune 500 companies. North Texas also has a strong network of higher education and healthcare institutions. The region as a whole is a national leader in the healthcare, technology, financial services, defense, and transportation industries.
