The CONMEBOL event is the third-most-watched international soccer competition in the world. It is known that the very same stadium has hosted multiple Super Bowls and World Series. Both hold a special place in the hearts of American audiences. The viewership for these events is in the millions for both American football and baseball. Yet the steadfast growth of soccer, especially in the States, will change it.

Notably, beIN Sports reported earlier that the previous edition of the Copa America and UEFA Euro combined brought a viewership of over a billion. This transcends the TV ratings and numbers of the NFL and MLB tournaments.

Nevertheless, the atmosphere of the Copa America this year remains to be seen. Any thoughts? Let us know in the comments below.
