The Brazilian Federal Supreme Court approved the holding of the 2021 Copa America in Brazil, during an extraordinary session held on Thursday.

Seven out of 11 ministers voted to hold the 2021 Copa America in Brazil.

The Brazilian Federal Supreme Court’s rulings are not subject to appeal, exclusively in matters involving unconstitutional issues.

The Copa America was to be held in Colombia and Argentina before the first country was excluded due to the protests, and then Argentina was excluded due to the emerging Corona virus pandemic.

Then the South American Football Confederation “CONMEBOL” decided to assign the organization of the tournament to Brazil, but doubts persisted, and it was reported that the Brazilian players did not want to participate in the tournament, due to the Corona virus.

The Copa America is scheduled to start on June 13 in Brazil, where the competition will open with the match between Brazil and Venezuela, then Colombia with Ecuador.

The first group in the Copa America includes: Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay, Bolivia and Chile, while the second group brings together the teams: Brazil, Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru
