A possible return home for Lionel Messi? Argentina has already secured their place in the 2024 Copa America tournament, which will take place in Miami.
The tournament’s first game will take place on June 20 at Mercedes Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia, which is home to the Major League Soccer team Atlanta United. This information was released on Monday. On July 14, however, the championship game will be held in Miami at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens.
For the Argentine, who works with Inter Miami right next to the Miami Dolphins stadium, it would be a legendary homecoming. Since his July arrival to the MLS club, Therons and the Argentine have transformed South Florida into a football hotbed, and now the city is going to host one of the most prestigious finals in world football history.
Alejandro Domínguez, the president of CONMEBOL, stated, “We expect stadiums filled with the passion of the entire American continent for the inauguration and final of an unforgettable CONMEBOL Copa America.” “The ball will start rolling in Atlanta and not stop until the last game in Miami, which is one month away. These are fantastic stadiums located in amazing cities. We appreciate the invaluable assistance in organising this competition provided by the US government and our friends in CONCACAF.
Messi only has one Copa title in his pocket, though, as Argentina defeated Brazil 1-0 in the tournament’s 2021 final. Although La Albiceleste hasn’t won a tournament since 1993, they have 15 times in total since 1921.
