The South American Football Association (CONMEBOL) has decided that the Copa America Football tournament will be held on pre-scheduled dates in Brazil. The venues in Brazil will be decided on the later dates. The match is scheduled for June 13 to July 10 where 10 countries from the South America region will participate.
The Copa America football tournament was scheduled to happen in Argentina and Colombia in 2020 only. However, due to protests in social and economic issues in Colombia, the country was removed from the host. The tournament got postponed by 1 year due to the COVID-19 pandemic and was scheduled to happen in Argentina only.
CONMEBOL has now released news that the tournament will be held in Brazil this year. The association doesn’t justify the reason for it being shifted from Argentina and only says that the tournament has been shifted due to “the present circumstances”.
It is believed that the growing cases for COVID-19 due to the second wave in Argentina might have caused the board to shift the venue. Meanwhile, there are concerns of tournaments being held successfully due to the huge surge of cases in Brazil as well. It is reported that Uruguay has already supported a tournament to be held in Brazil but asks for fewer locations and closer venues.
