Copa América 2024 draw is Thursday, here's how it works and how to watch

The 48th edition of the Copa América is coming to the United States and the 16 teams will find out who they will face in the group stage Thursday.

The expanded field includes countries from both CONMEBOL and CONCACAF, headlined by World Cup and defending Copa América champions Argentina with Lionel Messi in tow.

The 2024 tournament will be the first proper version of the tournament to be held in the States, with the country hosting the commemorative Copa América Centenario in 2016.

The tournament could serve as a test of the US Men's National Team ahead of the 2026 World Cup as Thursday's draw could see the side placed in a group with up to three teams in the top 50 in the FIFA Rankings.

Here's how to watch the draw for the CONMEBOL Copa América 2024 tournament.

How does the Copa América Final Draw work?

Copa América organizers will draw teams to fill out four groups that will play against each other in the group stage.

The 16 sides have been divided into four pots, grouped by FIFA rankings with the exception of pot 1. Countries in pot 1 were assigned to the pot by being either the highest ranked team in the confederation or by winning the most recent continental tournament.

These teams have been given their group assignments and begin the group stage in the first position. The teams in pot 1 include: Argentina (A1, defending Copa America champion), Brazil (D1, highest FIFA ranking in CONMEBOL), Mexico (B1, Gold Cup champion) and the United States (C1, highest FIFA ranking in CONCACAF).

Teams from the remaining pots will be drawn with one team from each pot going into each group. Each group will have three CONMEBOL teams and two CONCACAF teams.
