The change of venue was requested by the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) considering that the general elections in that country will be held the following day, Sunday, October 2.

The new venue was agreed upon by the members of the Conmebol Council given the impossibility of carrying out the program at the Mané Garrincha World Cup stadium in the Brazilian capital.

Córdoba already hosted the definition of the 2020 South American Cup when Argentina’s Defense and Justice champion was consecrated. Both the tournament and the final could not have an audience in the stadiums due to the covid-19 pandemic.

“The sustained increase in prizes for participating and winning clubs, the increasing reach of broadcasts and the high level of competition of the teams are factors that show the expansion of this continental tournament”, the entity pointed out.
