Ep. 24 – World Cup 2026 & Johnny (Canadian) Football

World Cup 2026

On today’s episode of the Cosmos Podcast, I’m joined in studio by Matt Hunter and Justin Bernardo for another round table discussion on some of the latest news stories in Canadian Sports Business and on the World Cup 2026.

In this episode we discuss:

  • The FIFA World Cup coming to Canada in 2026 along with the US and Mexico. What impact that will have on Canadian Soccer, and what are some of the business implications of hosting this event?
  • Dave Hopkinson, former Chief Commercial Officer of MLSE steps down to join Real Madrid.
  • And lastly, Johnny Manziel makes his Canadian Football League debut with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. What impact does he have on the league and on the individual teams from a business perspective?
