CONMEBOL Set To Change Copa America Dates To Coincide With Euros

The South American Football Confederation (CONMEBOL) have decided to modify the schedule of Copa America which could see the prestigious tournament being played alongisde European championships.

So far Copa America was usually played an year prior to Euros. However, last year the iconic tournament was played to celebrate 100 years of Copa America and the confederation are keen to play the tournament in line with Euros from 2020.

The decision would be a huge positive for major clubs like Real Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern Munich and few others who will now have to wait only summer for their players to return late. Earlier, the clubs suffered due to lack of resources as players were given plenty of rest at the start of the season after their national duty to keep them fresh for the reminder of the season.

The next Copa America will be played in 2019 as Brazil play hosts for the upcoming edition. The 2020 edition is expected to be played in Ecuador and from then on the tournament will be played on the same year as Euro championships.

Euro 2020 will also be a special one as the tournament will be played across 13 cities in Europe which is different from the existing tournament which is being played in a single country.
