Copa América 2024 To Be Held In The USA

Copa American 2024 Tickets

Copa America 2024 is coming to the USA! Conmebol and Concacaf have jointly announced that the rumors were true.

Coming out of the World Cup last year there was a lot of talk amongst the US, Mexican and Canadian national team fans, that all three countries need to play more competitive games ahead of the 2026 World Cup.

As co-hosts of that event, all three nations will qualify automatically for the competition, leaving very few opportunities to play a competitive meaningful match over the next 4 years.

Well the Federations obviously listened as the Copa América 2024 will include the 10 Conmebol nations and six Concacaf guest nations, with the latter group qualifying via the 2023-24 Concacaf Nations League.

That means that technically the USMMNT, Canada and Mexico are not guaranteed to participate, but if they fail to finish in the top six of CONCACAF that will be a stpry in itself.

But the headliner is the Copa America, which could be Lionel Messi’s last major tournament with Argentina. It will, at the very least, bring the reigning world champs and a host of other stars to the U.S.

It will also be a critical measuring stick for the USMNT, perhaps the first and most important under a new coach. It will be an opportunity to assess progress and personnel at the midway point between the 2022 and 2026 World Cups.

Now the USMNT just needs to hire a coach!
