CONMEBOL announces pots for 2024 Copa América draw
The South American Confederation confirmed the four pots for the Copa América draw.
It’s official, the United States will be part of Pot 1 in the Copa América draw to be held on Thursday in Miami. CONMEBOL confirmed on Friday how the four groups will be formed to determine the groups for next summer’s tournament.
Argentina, as reigning Copa América champions, will be in Group A, while Group B will be led by CONCACAF Gold Cup champions Mexico.
The United States will be seeded in Group C, after CONMEBOL granted that place to the best team in CONCACAF according to the recently updated FIFA rankings in which the USMNT are ranked 14th.
Group D will be led by Brazil, who are ranked as the best team in CONMEBOL according to the FIFA world rankings.
The four groups for the 2024 Copa América draw
Argentina (A1), Mexico (B1), United States (C1), Brazil (D1)
Uruguay, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru
Chile, Panama, Venezuela, Paraguay
Jamaica, Bolivia, CONCACAF 5 (Trinidad and Tobago or Canada) and CONCACAF 6 (Honduras or Costa Rica).
The USMNT will therefore avoid group-stage clashes with Argentina, Brazil and Mexico, the other teams in Pot 1.
