Argentina wont host the upcoming COPA America due to the Covid surge being experienced in the country.
In a statement posted on Twitter, the governing body wrote: “CONMEBOL informs that, in view of the present circumstances, it decided to suspend the organisation of the Copa América in Argentina.
“CONMEBOL analyses the offer from other countries that have shown interest in hosting the continental tournament.
“News in this regard will be announced soon.”
The announcement is a blow to the tournament as the news came out just ten days after co-host Colombia were withdrawn from hosting the piece due to the political instability being experienced in the country.
The tournament is slated to take place between 13 June and 10 July.
