Organised by the South American Football Confederation, commonly known as CONMEBOL, the Copa America 2024 draw will be held at the James L. Knight Center from 7:30 PM local time. 

For Indian fans, the highly-anticipated event will start at 6 AM Indian Standard Time on Friday, December 8.

The Copa America 2024 will see 16 teams feature in the quadrennial international men's football championship. The 48th edition will be hosted across 14 venues in the United States from June 20 to July 14, 2024. The tournament will be held in the United States for the second time and will be co-organised by CONCACAF.

A total of 10 CONMEBOL teams have secured automatic qualification for Copa America 2024. As many as four CONCACAF teams have qualified from the CONCACAF Nations League 2023-24.
