In which stadiums will the Copa América 2021 be played?
After the losses of Colombia and Argentina from the organization of the Copa América, Conmebol announced the decision to move the event to Brazil. Now, what has been ratified after the announcement by Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, and later by the South American entity itself, are the four venues that will host the event: Brasilia, Rio de Janeiro, Cuiabá and Goiania.
Where to watch the Copa América's in the USA?
The Televisa Univisión Deportes Network (TUDN) channel, owned by Televisa and Mexican-American property, will have the broadcasting rights in Spanish of the Copa América 2021, as well as the incidents of the Gold Cup 2021.
TUDN is a paid subscription channel where anyone who wants to watch the Copa América matches can do so through that signal. There is no other authorized medium for the transmission of the Conmebol contest matches in the United States.
"This agreement gives TUDN three of the most important soccer tournaments of the summer; we are very happy that the jewel in the crown of South American soccer is returning to Univisión," said Juan Carlos Rodríguez, president of Sports at Univisión.
