Copa America got a new start date

Copa America got a new start date

The coronavirus has turned down everything. The soccer calendar has been rearranged. Preparations are in full swing to the delayed contests. This is the way Copa America acquired a brand new start date. The struggle for supremacy in Latin America, which has been postponed by a year because of coronavirus, will start on June 11 next year. Argentina will take the area within an introductory day.

The Copa America was scheduled for June-July this year. But the 12-team competition was postponed due to the coronavirus epidemic. Conmebol, the highest governing body of Latin football, released a new schedule on Thursday. The tournament, co-hosted by Argentina and Colombia, will start on June 11 and end on July 10 with the final.

After the match against Chile, Argentina will play against Uruguay on June 15, Paraguay on June 19, Australia on June 22 and Bolivia on June 26.

If there had been a pre-coronavirus epidemic, there would have been three major football tournaments this year — Olympic football, the Euro and the Copa America. All the three competitions have been taken again in 2021. Neymar has expressed interest in playing in the Olympics like in 2016.

However, in 2016, he gave up the Copa for Olympic gold. This time Neymar is not willing to do that anymore. Neymar will seek permission from the club to play in both. Meanwhile, Japan has not yet made a clear decision on hosting the Olympics. If it's just the Copa America, Neymar's chances of playing there will increase.
