“CONMEBOL informs that in view of the present circumstances, it has decided to suspend the organization of the Copa América in Argentina,” the confederation tweeted. “CONMEBOL analyzes the offer of other countries that showed interest in hosting the continental tournament.”
CONMEBOL did not specify why the tournament had been removed, but Argentina is currently suffering from a rise in coronavirus cases, with a seven-day average of more than 30,000 new daily cases, ジョンズホプキンス大学のデータによると.
The current death toll stands at more than 77,000 — with Argentines now locked down for the second time during this pandemic.
Alongside the usual 10 South American nations, this year’s tournament was also set to feature Qatar and Australia as invitees, but both countries pulled out in February due to scheduling issues brought on by the pandemic.
Now with less than two weeks to organize an international tournament, チリ, Ecuador and the US have been touted as possible locations to step in and host the Copa América.
