Brazil will host Copa America for the second consecutive time after Colombia and Argentina were stripped of hosting rights for the tournament.

South American football body CONMEBOL announced the decision on Monday hours after it had ruled out Argentina amid an increase in COVID-19 cases in the country. Colombia were removed as a co-host for the competition on May 20 following demonstrations against President Ivn Duque there.

CONMEBOL said on Twitter that the tournament is confirmed to take place between June 13 and July 10. Brazil are the defending champions, after winning the competition in 2019 as hosts.

"The host cities and the fixtures will be confirmed by CONMEBOL within hours. The oldest international tournament in the world will make the whole continent cheer!", the South American body said.

"CONMEBOL thanks President Jair Bolsonaro and his team, and also the Brazilian soccer confederation for opening the doors of this country for the safest sporting event in the world today. South America will shine in Brazil with all its stars."
