Copa America
Colombia was initially dropped from the Copa America host country. After the outbreak of coronavirus, Argentina was also dropped from the list of host countries. Instead of these two countries, this year's Copa America will be in Brazil.

The South American Football Confederation has named the new host country in a statement. According to the previous schedule, this year's event will be held on June 13 and will continue till July 10.

"Copa America 2021 will be in Brazil," Conmebol said in a statement. Start and end dates have been confirmed. Details of the host city and matches will be announced later.

In an earlier statement, Conmebol said: "The Copa America cannot be postponed until November, given the issues surrounding the annual international schedule and events. Conmebol thanked Colombian President Ivan Duque and Colombian Football Federation President Ramon Hesurun for their encouragement and dedication.

According to the previous schedule, the Copa America will run from June 13 to July 10. This year's event was to have 15 matches, including the final, in Colombia and the remaining 13 in Argentina. The opening match was scheduled to take place in Buenos Aires, Argentina. But everything will be in Brazil at the new venue. Conmebol will announce the venue soon.

According to the schedule, Argentina was to face Chile in the first match. But with the exclusion of the host country, the schedule may change a bit.

This time 10 teams will play in two groups. Four teams from each group will play in the knockout stage. The two guest teams Australia and Qatar are scheduled to play but are not staying until the end.

The tournament was originally scheduled to take place last year. In 2020, the tournament was postponed for a year due to Corona's influence.
