Why Copa America is being played in 2021 ?
The CONMEBOL holds events so frequently that everyone wonders why. There have been four Copa Americas in the last six years. This tournament, which was originally scheduled every four years, was held once this year and in 2016 it was held to celebrate Copa America’s centennial. A four-year look back at the year 2015 resulted in Copa America 2019 being conducted.
The CONMEBOL now decides to host the mega-even every four and a half years. Hence, Copa America 2020 will be held to align with calculations. This means that the next mega event will take place in 2024, every 4 years thereafter.
