Arcimoto, Inc. (FUV) in mid of this month announced that it has joined Baltimore-Maryland 2026 World Cup Host Committee for promoting Baltimore as host city for next FIFA World Cup scheduled in 2026.
Arcimoto is the maker of practical, joyful, and affordable electric vehicles providing rides like Rapid Responder, Deliverator, and Fun Utility Vehicle (FUV) for fleets and commuters.
The Maryland Sports Commission is collaborating with the City of Baltimore, the Maryland Stadium Authority, and Baltimore Ravens for the Baltimore contention. It will use Arcimoto’s FUN vehicles as an attractive promotional tool to create excitement. Arcimoto’s branded vehicles to be used in the stadiums will internally be named as “Futbol Utility Vehicle”. Using FUVs will also be helpful for the EV maker to demonstrate potential of its vehicles to handle mass transit while keeping a large sporting event green.
Arcimoto is pleased to be part of efforts to bring the FIFA World Cup to Biltmore, said Mark Frohnmayer, Founder and CEO of Arcimoto. To be part of this, will also provide the company a platform to present the capabilities of its vehicles. It will prove that company’s efficient and suitably sized vehicles are able to prevent pollution and gridlocks for such large-scale sporting events. And using these vehicles will be a joyful experience for the participants while providing a sustainable transportation network, Frohnmayer added.
The FIFA World Cup requires next-generation level of infrastructure and transportation systems as it is a once-in-a-generation event. It is an honor to team up with Arcimoto using its highly efficient and right-sized EVs. These will help us connecting fans and staff to the best of the city and world-class M&T Bank Stadium in an easy and sustainable way, said Terry Hasseltine, Executive Director of the Maryland Sports Commission.
With Arcimoto, we share the same goal of providing advanced and sustainable transportation ecosystem during mega event of World Cup in Baltimore, said Olubunmi Jinadu, Senior Bid Advisor for the Baltimore-Maryland 2026 World Cup Host Committee.
