South America’s top national team competition, the Copa America, will be held in the United States in 2024 and feature 10 teams from South America’s CONMEBOL and six teams from the CONCACAF region.
CONCACAF, the confederation for North and Central America and the Caribbean, said the tournament would be co-organised by both organisations.
The announcement is part of a series of new collaborations between the North and South American confederations including club and women’s team joint competitions.
CONMEBOL president Alejandro Dominguez said the two organisations wanted to see “more and better competitions and for football and its values to grow and strengthen throughout the hemisphere. Without a doubt, both confederations believe in big, and we will work with this orientation”.
Soccer’s Copa América is returning to the U.S. in 2024, part of a broad agreement that also includes plans for expanded intercontinental tournaments for clubs and women. https://t.co/y6mF8BiPpo
