Argentina or Uruguay could break their tie for the most Copa América titles if either of them wins, Argentina already increased their record for the most overall games won and goals scored, Chile could increase their record for the most overall games lost, while United States could become the first team outside of South America to win, which would make them the first non-South American host to win Copa América. When looking at individual records, Lionel Messi (Argentina) already broke his tie with Sergio Livingstone (Chile) and he became the sole holder of the record for the most matches played at Copa América (currently 35 after the first 2024 game). Additionally, Messi, Paolo Guerrero (Peru) and Eduardo Vargas (Chile) all have a chance to climb up in the rankings of the all-time top scorers at Copa América. Lastly, Guerrero could break his tie with Pedro Petrone (Uruguay) and he could become the first player to ever win the golden boot at Copa América on four occasions.

To see the full list of records that could be broken at the 2024 Copa América (divided by nations and individuals), have a look below. 

The following records refer to data going all the way back to 1916, thus including Copa América and its predecessor, the South American Championship.

  • Argentina could increase their record for the most separate consecutive title runs -they have won in consecutive years on 5 separate occasions; a consecutive win in 2024 would make it their first consecutive title victory in more than 30 years (Argentina won their last consecutive title in 1993)
