Copa America 2024: Tournament scheduled for June-July 2024
16 teams will participate in this competition
CONMEBOL have confirmed the dates of the Copa America 2024, with the United States being the host of the tournament. The declaration is a component of a number of new alliances between North and South American federations.
The Copa America is seen as the ideal lead-up to the 2026 World Cup, which will be co-hosted by the United States, Mexico, and Canada.
Additionally, it will guarantee that the three host countries, who will automatically qualify for the 48-team World Cup, will have more competitive games to prepare for.
The 48th Copa América, a quadrennial international men’s football association championship run by South American football’s governing body CONMEBOL, will take place in 2024. The competition will take place in the US and be co-organized by CONCACAF.
Having already sponsored the Copa América Centenario in 2016, the United States will serve as the tournament’s second host nation.
Argentina are currently the champions of the Copa America and will hope to retain the trophy next year.
