Two years before co-hosting the World Cup, the United States will host another major soccer tournament: the redesigned 2024 Copa America.
A reformatted 2024 Copa América will be hosted by the United States
Ecuador was due to host the tournament next year but withdrew in November due to safety and infrastructure concerns.
The U.S. hosted the Centennial Special Edition in 2016, the only previous event held outside of South America.
It was also announced that the 2024 edition will feature 10 regular teams from South America, plus six teams from North and Central America and the Caribbean.
The United States, which will co-host the 2026 World Cup with Mexico and Canada, is not guaranteed a spot in the Copa America, and the U.S. national team is expected to qualify through the CONCACAF and North American Nations League, currently second in Group D.
Argentina won the postponed 2021 tournament and has since become world champions thanks to a 1-0 win over hosts Brazil at the Maracana.
Meanwhile, the USMNT remains in limbo, with head coach Greg Berhalter (whose contract effectively expired last year) being investigated over scandals involving extortion and past cases of alleged domestic violence.
