Argentina and Colombia confirmed as Copa America co-hosts
CONMEBOL, South American soccer’s governing body, has officially confirmed Argentina and Colombia as co-hosts for the 2020 Copa America.

The 12-team, 38-match tournament will be split equally into two groups with six teams based in Argentina and six in Colombia. The final will be played in Argentina.

Despite the nations being nearly six hours away from each other by plane, CONMEBOL has decided to elect them to co-host after rejecting a bid from the US.

CONMEBOL is staging the revamped Copa America in 2020 as part of a move to align South America’s continental championship with UEFA's European Championship.

This year’s edition will also feature two guest nations from outside of South America in the form of Qatar and Japan.

Chile are the current champions having beaten Argentina on penalties in consecutive Copa America finals in 2015 and 2016.
