Copa America 2024 stadiums:
Hard Rock Stadium
The 2024 Copa America final will be held on July 14 in Miami, Florida at the home of the city’s NFL franchise. The choice is a sensible one, as the city hosts the nation’s 14th largest Hispanic population, including one third of the Argentines living in the United States.
Hard Rock Stadium has hosted plenty of soccer matches in the past, including a pre-World Cup friendly between Argentina and Honduras in September of 2022 that drew over 64,000 fans. The stadium is also part of the group of venues slated for 2026 World Cup matches.
CONMEBOL has slated Atlanta Georgia’s state-of-the-art venue to host the competition’s opening match on June 20, 2024.
Alongside SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles and Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Mercedes-Benz Stadium is considered one of the country’s most well-received new sports arenas.
