Copa America 2028 Host Candidates and Tournament Details

In 2024, the Copa America made its way to the United States for a historic and unforgettable edition of the tournament, featuring 10 CONMEBOL representatives and six teams from CONCACAF. But now, as the spotlight begins to dim on that event, attention turns to what’s next on the continental level with the Copa America 2028.

The Sporting News has taken a closer look at the possible host candidates and what we know so far about the upcoming tournament.

When will the Copa America 2028 take place?
While the schedule for the 2028 Copa America has not been officially set, it is expected to be held between June and July of that year, following the regular schedule for the competition.

Where will the Copa America 2028 be hosted?
CONMEBOL has not yet decided on the venue for the 2028 Copa America, but some countries have already expressed interest in hosting the tournament. Ecuador, the host of the 1993 edition, was the first to announce its bid for the 2028 tournament, with President Daniel Noboa making the announcement on social media.

There is also talk of Uruguay, Argentina, and Paraguay potentially joining forces to host the tournament as a pilot test for the 2030 World Cup. While nothing is set in stone, the idea has been discussed informally among officials.

Candidates to host the Copa America 2028:
So far, Ecuador and a joint bid from Uruguay, Argentina, and Paraguay have expressed interest in hosting the tournament. Formal bids from other countries are expected in the coming months, and the exact format of the tournament is still to be determined following the unique edition in 2024 that included CONCACAF teams.

As excitement builds for the future of the Copa America, football fans across the continent eagerly await the unveiling of the host country for the 2028 tournament. Stay tuned for further updates on this much-anticipated event.
