Copa America 2021 History

The tournament rules for Copa America has been haphazard so far. The tournament has actually been scheduled to be hosted every four years.
However, after the 2015 edition took place in Chile, there was a special edition the very next year in the US in 2016 and now it is being held three years after that in Brazil.
For the 2019 edition, Chile was supposed to be the original host while Brazil were supposed to host the tournament in 2015. Watch & Bet Live Here =>

However, as Brazil had already hosted the 2013 Confed Cup, the 2014 edition of the men’s FIFA World Cup and the 2016 Summer Olympics, they decided and agreed with Chile and CONMEBOL to switch the tournament hosting rights with Chile who were due to host in 2019 in CONMEBOL’s rule of teams hosting the Copa America in alphabetical order.

The switch was confirmed all the way back in 2012 and hence we can expect Brazil to be prepared for the event and have better preparations in place than they did for the 2013 Confed Cup or the 2014 edition of the men’s FIFA World Cup.

The situation is even more complicated as the next edition of the tournament is being held next year itself with the teams playing Copa America 2020 in Argentina and Colombia. Both Colombia and Argentina have been awarded the hosting rights for the Copa America 2020 edition. Watch & Bet Live Here =>

If a team gets knocked out from the quarter-final, such a country will be rewarded with $1.5 million. The beaten semi-finalists who contest the third-place play-off will get $3 Million and $2.5 Million respectively for the third and fourth spot.

The 2021 Copa America final is a $10m game and the winners will be paid $10m with the runners-up pocketing $5.5m.

The team that wins gets to go home with $10 Million followed by the second team at $5.5 Million, the third team ends up with $3 Million and the fourth team gets $2.5 Million in cash as prize money.

As we see, the prize money has been predicted to be the same as it was from 2017. Most importantly the amount which the winners got, the finalists got, the semi-finalists and the quarter finalists got are all set to remain the same.

In the quarter finals stage, there are 8 teams. While four of them progress to the top four or the semi-finals and win something from the $15.5 Million pot, the four left out teams distribute the remaining $6 Million prize money amongst themselves.

They divide the money equally and each team gets a some of $1.5 Million as an incentive for reaching the quarter finals of the knockout stages.

The Copa America winner gets 10 million US dollars while Runner Up gets 5.5 million US dollars.

The Runners-up are likely to win prize money of $5.5 Million; almost half of the prize money won by the winners.

However, they, like the winners, could stand to gain more as they would be subjected to a lot of money and prizes from sponsors and other local federations. They also get silver medals

While the second team gets a lot less than the first, the difference between the second and the third is not that high. So the team who finishes third gets bronze medals alongside winning a fulsome amount of $3 Million.

More good news follows for the fourth-placed team as well and their reward for reaching the semi final is there. While they do not get any medals, they are handsomely awarded otherwise with an amount of $2.5 Million in cash as prize money.
