2024 Copa America will be hosted in the United States
The 2024 Copa America tournament is coming to the US for the second time in the competition’s history. Rumors have been circulating in recent months that the USMNT were among the competitors after American midfielder Tyler Adams dropped a major hint.
Hosting was an option. Now it’s a fact.
CONMEBOL and CONCACAF have officially announced an agreement for the 2024 version of the Copa America. In the partnership, all 10 CONMEBOL teams play in the tournament in the United States. This includes Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay and Venezuela. In addition to these countries, six CONCACAF teams will also participate in the tournament.

The six CONCACAF teams will have to qualify for the competition through the 2023/24 Nations League. So is the USMNT, despite the United States hosting the tournament. That edition of the Nations League will start this fall.
“CONMEBOL and CONCACAF are united by historical and affective ties,” explained CONMEBOL President Alejandro Dominguez. “But above all, we are united by the passion, characteristic of all of America, for football and sports.”
“We are determined to renew and expand our joint initiatives and projects. We want this passion to translate into more and better competitions and for football and its values to grow and strengthen throughout the hemisphere. Undoubtedly, both confederations believe in big and we will work with this orientation.

Women’s Gold Cup will also include CONMEBOL teams
The agreement between the two confederations also covers women’s football. CONCACAF invited the top four CONMEBOL national teams to participate in the Women’s Gold Cup 2024. These four teams are Brazil, Colombia, Argentina and Paraguay. The United States is the host country for this tournament, in addition to the Copa America 2024.
“This is a partnership to support the continued growth of men’s and women’s football in CONCACAF and CONMEBOL and will truly be of mutual benefit to both confederations,” said CONCACAF President Victor Montagliani.
“In partnership with CONMEBOL, we will deliver elite leagues that give our federations more opportunities and that we know passionate fans want to see. We look forward to working together to ensure that football continues to thrive in both regions.”
New club tournament in the making
In addition to the Copa America and Women’s Gold Cup, CONACAF and CONMEBOL are also introducing a new club tournament. In this competition, the top two clubs from each confederation compete against each other in a final of four. Details of the new tournament will be finalized in the near future. However, there are plans to play this competition in 2024 as well.
