CONMEBOL decides to remove Colombia as co-hosts of Copa America 2021

Colombia has been removed as the co-hosts of the upcoming Copa America as a result of the ongoing protests. 

CONMEBOL rejected Colombia’s request to postpone the event to November 

CONMEBOL guarantees the realization of the 2021 Copa America and in the coming days will inform on where the games originally scheduled to be held in Colombia will be played,” CONMEBOL said in a statement. 

CONMEBOL said it was impossible to postpone the tournament to November as Colombia requested “due to conflict with the international calendar.”
