The CONMEBOL Copa América 2024™ will take place across 14 venues in the United States, marking the second time the tournament is hosted outside South America. Originally held in the U.S. in 2016, this year’s event continues a strategic partnership between CONMEBOL and CONCACAF.

This collaboration seeks to boost soccer development and increase visibility in both regions. By hosting the Copa América in the U.S. for a second time—initially in 2016—it taps into the U.S.’s robust sports infrastructure and diverse fan base to effectively promote the sport. This strategy not only introduces top-tier international football to North America but also fortifies the relationship between the two soccer confederations.
