Brazil to host Copa America for 2nd consecutive time

In football, Brazil will host Copa America for the second consecutive time after Colombia and Argentina were stripped of hosting rights for the tournament. South American soccer body CONMEBOL announced the decision hours after it ruled out Argentina amid an increase in COVID-19 cases in the country.

Colombia was removed as co-host on May 20 as street protests against President Ivn Duque rocked the nation. South American teams are already training for the tournament and two rounds of World Cup qualifiers are starting this week. Like other continental tournaments, Copa America was initially scheduled for 2020, but the COVID-19 pandemic forced its postponement.
