Copa America 2021: Full Schedule, venues, groups, dates, time in India, telecast and live streaming details

Brazil begin their title defence against Venezuela on June 13

Bengaluru, June 9: After being confirmed as tournament hosts just weeks before South American football's biggest extravaganza, Brazil are set to kick off the event in Rio de Janeiro against Venezuela.

Like the Euro 2020, Copa America also was orginally scheduled to take place last year. But, due to coronavirus pandemic the tournament was postponed to 2021. The event was moved to Brazil following the rise in COVID-19 cases in Argentina and political protests in Colombia.

Colombia was removed as a host nation on May 20, while Argentina suffered similar consequences on May 30 and on June 1, Brazil were confirmed as hosts just two weeks before the event could kick off.

While the capital city Brasilia's Mane Garrincha will host the opening match on 13 June, the final will be played at the Maracana in Rio de Janeiro on 10 July.

10 teams divided into two groups of 5 teams each will vie for the eighteenth edition of Copa America, which was formerly known as South American Championship since it's inception in 1975.

The top four teams will then progress to the quarterfinal stage with the winners of Group A taking on 4th placed team in Group B, while the runners up of Group A will take on 3rd placed side of Group B.

And likewise the other two quarterfinals will be contested between Group B runners up and 3rd placed side of Group A, while the Group B winners will take on 4th placed side of Group A.

Two heavyweights in Lionel Messi and Neymar will do battle as the latter will look to defend the title with Brazil, while the former will look to win his first major title with the senior Argentina national team.
