What are you doing seven years from now?
Clear your calendar:
The Phillies will host the 2026 All Star Game at Citizens Bank Park. MLB will hold a press conference next Tuesday at City Hall to announce it.

Breen says the announcement will be made at Independence Hall next week.
2026 is America’s 250th birthday, so it’s fitting you’d play the All-Star Game in the city where it all began – beautiful Philadelphia. That’s better than playing the game in disgusting New York or Washington.
This also happens to coincide with the 2026 US/Canada/Mexico World Cup, so it’s conceivable Philadelphia could host Major League Baseball’s All-Star Game AND a World Cup game in the same summer.
