“We expect stadiums filled with the passion of the entire American continent for the inauguration and final of an unforgettable CONMEBOL Copa America,” said Alejandro Domínguez, President of CONMEBOL.

We are grateful for the valuable cooperation of the US authorities and our friends from Concacaf in the organisation of this competition. We look forward to the best CONMEBOL Copa America of all time.”
