Hard Rock Stadium to host the 2024 Copa America grand final

The grand final will be played at Hard Rock Stadium in South Florida on July 14. The construction of a football stadium in Miami was the initiative of Miami Dolphins founder Joe Robbie. After years of playing at the Orange Bowl downtown, the club moved north. Here, surrounded by huge car parks, a stadium with two levels of seating for 75,000 spectators was erected in 1987. At the time, its trademark was eight spiral ramps in the corners, leading spectators to the upper stands.

Copa America 2024 will bring together 10 South American teams and six North American teams, offering a diverse and exciting line-up. Fans can expect an extraordinary conclusion to the tournament at Miami Gardens. All in all, Copa America 2024 promises to be an unforgettable event, with Mercedes-Benz and Hard Rock stadiums sure to play a key role in hosting the best footballers from this part of the world.
