The United States will host a reformatted 2024 Copa America, CONMEBOL has confirmed.
Ecuador had been due to stage next year’s competition but withdrew in November due to concerns over security and infrastructure.
The USA previously hosted the tournament in 2016 for a special centenary edition, with that the only previous occasion it has been held outside of South America.
It has also been announced that the 2024 edition will feature its usual 10 teams from South America, plus six from North and Central America and the Caribbean.
The USA, who will also jointly-host the 2026 World Cup along with Mexico and Canada, are not guaranteed a place at the Copa America.
Argentina won the delayed 2021 tournament thanks to 1-0 win over hosts Brazil at the Maracana, though coronavirus restrictions meant stadia capacities were restricted.
Conmebol and Concacaf have signed a strategic collaboration agreement to strengthen and develop football in both regions.
