Like UEFA with the Euro, Conmebol has decided to postpone the next edition of the Copa America to 2021, which was due to take place this summer, due to the coronavirus.

While UEFA has decided to postpone the 16th edition of the Euro for a year, the South American Confederation (Conmebol) also chose, on Tuesday, to postpone in 2021 the next edition of the Copa America, which was to take place from June 12 to July 12 in Colombia and Argentina.

The 47th edition of the competition will take place from June 11 to July 11, 2021, on the same dates as the Euro.

"In exceptional circumstances, exceptional measure", justified Alejandro Dominguez, president of Conmebol with Reuters. "It was not an easy decision to make but we must at all costs preserve the health of our players and the huge family of South American football," he added. But rest assured that the oldest international tournament in the world will come back stronger than ever in 2021. ”
