The South American Football Confederation Conmebol on Monday named Brazil as the host of the Copa America 2021. The event is scheduled to start on June 13. It will end on July 10.
For the first time in the 105-year history of Copa America, the tournament was to be jointly organized by the two countries. But after the anti-government movement in Colombia was cut off on May 20, Argentina wanted to organize it alone. But as the country’s coronavirus situation deteriorated, Conmebol made a new decision.
“Copa America 2021 will be in Brazil,” Conmebol said in a proclamation on Monday. Start and end dates have been affirmed. Subtleties of the host city and matches will be declared later. “
Under 24 hours after Argentina was dropped from the host, Conmebol reported Brazil as the host. Brazil has facilitated the contest multiple times previously and has won the title each time.
More than 4 lakh individuals have passed on in Brazil subsequent to being contaminated with the Covid-19 infection. South America is at present the top country on the planet as far as everyday assaults and passings and second just to the world.
Conmebol is reluctant to cancel or postpone the tournament due to financial reasons. Income from the competition in Brazil in 2019 was 11.8 crore Doller, the organization’s second-most noteworthy wellspring of income. Each group taking an interest in the current year’s occasion is relied upon to get in any event 40 lakhs Doller, with the hero group getting an extra 1 crore Doller.
