Just 13 days before the official start of the tournament, the Copa America 2021 has been moved from Argentina to Brazil. 

“The Copa América 2021 will be played in Brazil,” the South American Football Confederation (Conmebol) unceremoniously announced. “Tournament start and end dates are confirmed. The venues and the fixtures will be announced by Conmebol in the next few hours.”

The reasons behind the move weren't officially disclosed by Conmenbol, but it is believed a Covid-19 surge in Argentina forced the organizers to move the tournament, that will feature 10 South-American National teams. The tournament's inaugural game is scheduled for June 13th.
