Copa America 2024 schedule and venues announced: USMNT will play first game at AT&T Stadium in Texas

The New York and Los Angeles metropolitan areas are among the 14 hosts for an expanded version of the Copa America next summer, which will see South American sides duke it out alongside some of North America’s best teams.

MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, headlines the Monday announcement as the site of three matches, including the first semifinal matchup on July 9. Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina will host the other semifinal on July 10, as well as the third place match on July 13.

As the South American confederation previously announced, Atlanta’s Mercedes Benz Stadium will hold the opening game on June 20 and Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida will host the final on July 14. Lionel Messi’s Argentina will play the first match of the Copa America and make stops in East Rutherford and Miami Gardens in the group stage, the latter of which will be familiar terrain for the Arenginta captain and current Inter Miami player.

The U.S. men’s national team, who booked their spot in the Copa America with their Concacaf Nations League triumph over Trinidad and Tobago last month, will play their group stage matches at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, Atlanta, and Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri. Should they make it as far as the final in Miami as a group winner, their path would take them to Vegas for the quarterfinals and Charlotte for the semifinals .

Mexico will play at NRG Stadium in Houston, SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California, and State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, while Brazil will pop into Inglewood, Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, and Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California during their group stage campaigns. The draw will take place on Thursday in Miami. See below for a list of all of the host cities, along match schedule and draw pots.
