According to reports, it is possible that Marta, Neymar, and Lionel Messi will soon visit a city near you. In 2024, the next men’s South American championship, the Copa America, will be held in the United States. All ten men’s teams from South America and the six best teams from the North, Central, and Caribbean federations will compete in the tournament.
Although the locations of the Copa America were not revealed on Friday, it is likely that they will be in cities that have already been selected to host the men’s World Cup in 2026. That tournament is being co-hosted by Mexico, the United States, and Canada.
As part of a larger agreement between Conmebol, the South American federation, and Concacaf, which includes teams from Central and North America as well as the Caribbean, the Copa America announcement was made. In addition, the confederations will organize a club competition featuring the top two teams from each confederation and a women’s 12-team tournament in the United States in 2024.
Messi said that the most recent World Cup would be his last, but after Argentina won in Qatar, he said that he would play for the Albiceleste for a little while longer so that he could enjoy the world champions’ status. Messi is expected to stay for Argentina’s Copa America championship, which is currently in its fourth year.
