How to follow Colombia at Copa America 2024: Fixtures, cities, venues and more

Colombia are the perennial dark horse of international soccer. Whether it be the FIFA World Cup or the Copa America, they're given that outsider tag. They're the ones to watch and the nation that could disrupt the Brazils and Argentinas of this world. 

In terms of lifting the Copa America trophy, they haven't really done that with one lone win back in 2001. However, the nation claimed the third spot in 2021 and 2016 when the tournament was last held in the USA. 

One thing is for sure: Colombia is always entertaining to watch, and once again, they're set to play a huge part.

A good start is certainly required to get through Group D, where they will face the nation most likely to snatch a qualification spot from them, Paraguay. That takes place on June 24 in Houston, with a 5 pm CDT kick-off.

Before the Copa America 2024 gets underway, Los Cafeteros will have a warm-up fixture against the USA on June 8. This will take place in Landover at the Commander's Stadium, home of the NFL franchise, the Washington Commanders.

Copa America 2024 Colombia fixtures come thick and fast. Following the Paraguay opener, the team travels to Arizona four days later for their fixture with Costa Rica or Honduras. It's a fixture in which they'll want to have wrapped qualification up ahead of their most difficult tie of the group on July 2.

Taking on Brazil in Santa Clara, just outside San Jose, it's perhaps the game of the Group Stage, one in which both teams will likely be battling to top the group.

Successfully navigate the group, and it's likely either the USA or Uruguay will await in the Quarter Final.

If they top Group D in the knockout stage, they'll be back at the Arizona Cardinals' home. If they finish runners-up, which most pundits and sportsbooks expect, it'll be the bright lights of Las Vegas and the Allegiant Stadium. Both fixtures would take place on July 6. The Semi-Final, should they make it, takes place on July 10 at the Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina.
