Conmebol announced on Monday that the Copa America, which should have been held last year, will be played in Brazil, after it was informed on Sunday night that it will not be held in Argentina due to the intensification of the pandemic.

The highest authority of South American soccer indicated in a brief statement that the “dates and start of the tournament are confirmed” and that the “venues and the fixture will be informed in the next few hours.”

Conmebol made the announcement after Argentina was ruled out as host of the tournament it was to share with Colombia, which requested a postponement due to the social conflict in that country, which was not accepted by the organization.
