Originally, the 2024 competition was scheduled to be held in Ecuador. However, Ecuador gave up hosting the event in November last year, citing insecure security in its own country.
Accordingly, in celebration of the 100th anniversary of the Copa America in 2016, it was decided to hold the tournament once again in the United States, where the tournament was held. In addition, six teams from CONCACF member countries decided to participate. The top six teams in the 2023-24 CONCACF Nations League will qualify for the Copa America.
In addition, four women’s national teams from CONMEBOL will participate in the CONCACAF Women’s Gold Cup in 2024.
In addition, from 2024, two teams from both continents will participate in a club competition to determine the best club in the Americas.
