Copa America will take place from the United States this year

John Strong and Stu Holden, a former US midfielder who was Fox’s lead team at both the 2018 and 2022 World Cups, are set to work on this year's Copa America coverage.

They'll be joined by JP Dellacamera, partnering again with Cobi Jones, following their successful stint during the last World Cup. Meanwhile, Luis Omar Tapia pairs up with Maurice Edu. Tapia recently joined Fox after spending ten years at Univision.

Strong and Holden are scheduled to be on-site for all US matches at Copa America, which runs concurrently from June 20 to July 14 in various locations across the United States.

The Dellacamera-Jones duo will split their time between attending games live at stadiums and providing analysis from Fox’s Los Angeles studio. Tapia and Edu will be based in Los Angeles throughout the tournament.

Former referees Mark Clattenburg and Joe Machnik have been roped in as rules analysts, bringing their expertise to help viewers understand the intricacies of soccer regulations during both tournaments.

In a thrilling climax to both tournaments, Fox Sports will broadcast the finals of Euro 2024 and Copa America as a doubleheader on July 14. The Euro 2024 championship match is scheduled to kick off from Berlin at 3pm EDT, followed by the Copa America final from Miami Gardens, Florida starting at 8pm.
