Copa America 2021 teams & fixtures

Initially, Copa America 2020 was to feature 10 teams from South American confederation CONMEBOL and two teams from the AFC (Asian Football Confederation).

The 2021 tournament will go ahead with 10 CONMEBOL representatives – Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay and Venezuela. This is because the two AFC representatives – Australia and Qatar – pulled out due to scheduling conflict after the AFC decided to postpone the joint qualifiers’ dates for the 2022 FIFA World Cup and 2023 AFC Asian Cup.

Where will Copa America 2021 take place?
