The CONMEBOL Copa America announced Monday that the 107-year tournament, one of the oldest and most exciting in the world, will have its final match at the Hard Rock Stadium on July 14. The 65,000-seat stadium, home to the Miami Dolphins, has previously hosted international events such as Super Bowl LIV and is set to host the FIFA World Cup in 2026.
The Copa America is typically held in South America and will feature 10 South American nations and six North American teams. It will begin at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, which has the capacity to accommodate more than 71,000 spectators, on June 20. Other venues have yet to be announced.
“We are proud to host the CONMEBOL Copa America 2024 final at Hard Rock Stadium,” said Tom Garfinkel, Vice Chairman, President and CEO of the Miami Dolphins and Hard Rock Stadium. “As a global entertainment destination, we strive to reflect the dynamic and international culture of Miami…. We are excited to deliver an incredible world class experience for players and fans alike and highlight the passion of football in our community.”
The group stage draw will also take place on December 7th in Miami.
This will be the second time the U.S. hosts the Copa America. It last took place in 2016 for a 100-year centennial celebration of the event.
“Atlanta and Miami will prove excellent hosts for these flagship matches, and I congratulate both cities and their sports commissions. The two venues are world-class, and the cities have passionate sports and football fans renowned for getting behind major events,” said Victor Montagliani, Concacaf President and FIFA Vice President.
