The Argentine FA are planning to add three more Stadiums ahead of mega event. As per a report by TyC Sports, the three stadiums being la Bombonera, the Bicentenario, and the Libertadores de America

The Copa America tournament, like the European Championship, was due to take place last year but was postponed by 12 months due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Two guest nations, Australia and Qatar, pulled out of the tournament in February due to a clash with World Cup qualifying dates. India too were invited to be a part of the event but the AIFF backed out as the dates weren’t suitable enough.
