The Copa América is not played in Argentina. This has been decided by the South American Football Association Conmebol, thirteen days before the start of the event. The union says that is the result of the “current circumstances”.
It is unclear what this means, but it may have to do with the increase in the number of corona infections in Argentina. Conmebol says she will quickly come up with more information.
The tournament between ten South American countries was initially to be played in Argentina and Colombia, but due to political unrest in Colombia, Conmebol decided earlier this month that all games will be played in Argentina.
The Copa América is scheduled from June 13 to July 10. It is not clear where the tournament will now be played. “Conmebol is looking at offers from other countries that have expressed interest in hosting the tournament,” the union said in a brief statement.
