FAQs

Who is hosting the Copa America in 2024?

The USA will be hosting the 2024 Copa America for the second time. The first time was only eight years ago, and several of the stadiums and cities from then will be returning as host venues.

The USA stepped in to host this year's tournament to replace Ecuador. The South American country had been expected to be hosted by them as part of CONMEBOL's host rotation order. However, the country declined to host the tournament, with it then going to the USA.

Who is favored in the Copa America 2024?

Argentina, who won the Copa America in 2021, are the favorites for the tournament, both with sportsbooks and pundits. Most sportsbooks are placing them at around +163 with Brazil second favorites at +200.

Both Colombia and Uruguay are the outsiders most favored, while Mexico and the USA are priced at +1,000.

Why are Copa America tickets so expensive?

The Copa America is one of the biggest tournaments on the planet, and this year will offer a real taste of the 2026 World Cup, which is also to be held in the United States alongside Canada and Mexico.

Tickets can be picked up for $60 for some games, but as CONMEBOL's flagship tournament, many tickets are over the $100 mark. However, for that you do get to see players such as Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi for perhaps the last time, as well as exciting young talent such as Julian Alvarez, Vinicius Jr. and Darwin Nunez.

Will Neymar play Copa America 2024?

Neymar will unfortunately miss the 2024 Copa America due to a serious knee injury he sustained in October. He suffered a setback on international duty, requiring ACL surgery the following month. It had been thought he may recover in time, but this has since been ruled out by Brazil team doctor Rodrigo Lasmar.

Will Messi play Copa America 2024?

Lionel Messi, as it stands, is fit and expected to play a role in Argentina's defense for Copa America. The Inter Miami star could well see the tournament as his last at the international level and will be keen to go out on a high, particularly following the nation's FIFA World Cup win two years ago.
