Colombia to host 2020 Copa America Finals

Colombia will host the finals of the 2020 Copa America. 

This was confirmed by the Colombian Football Federation (FCF) with the tournament set to be co-hosted with Argentina. Colombia hosted the 2001 competition when they won their first Copa America title by beating Mexico 1-0 in the final on home soil. CONMEBOL awarded Colombia and Argentina the rights to stage the 2020 Copa America but did not decide where to play the knockout stage matches.

"The executive committee of the Colombian Football Federation is proud and happy to announce that the final of the Copa America Colombia-Argentina 2020 will be played in our country," an FCF statement said.

"For Colombia, it is a privilege to have this vote of confidence on the part of CONMEBOL, to elect us as the venue for the final of the most important tournament in South America.

The ongoing Copa America in Brazil finishes on July 7 at Maracana Stadium.
