MARTA will host a viewing party at the West End Station for tonight’s Copa America game between Argentina and Canda at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. The match features global superstar Lionel Messi, who plays for Argentina.

MARTA is joining Soccer in the Streets, Atlanta City Councilmember Jason Dozier and Coca-Cola as hosts.

The viewing party is free with a jumbo screen for the match, food trucks, music and games.

It might be just the beginning with Atlanta to host some 2026 World Cup matches.

“We’re excited to come together to watch some of the best soccer players in the world compete,” MARTA General Manager and CEO Collie Greenwood said in a statement. “Together with our partner Soccer in the Streets, we plan to host more events like this, especially with Atlanta hosting eight matches during World Cup 2026.”

The watch party will be from 7-10 p.m. The match is scheduled to begin at 8 p.m. Parking at West End Station is limited. Attendees are urged to take MARTA to West End Station or park at Oakland City Station and ride the train one stop.

More than 70,000 tickets have been sold for the match between Argentina and Canada. Tickets are officially sold out.

Argentina fans took to the streets in downtown Atlanta along Peachtree Street on Wednesday, shutting down traffic near the Westin, Hooters and Hard Rock Cafe.
