Brazil is confirmed as the last-minute host of the 2021 America’s Cup as four venues have been announced


Rio de Janeiro, Brasilia, Mato Grosso and Goiás states have been selected to host hurriedly rescheduled matches

Brazil’s chief of staff, Luis Ramos, confirmed on Tuesday that Brazil will host the 2021 America’s Cup in four venues across the country.

CONMEBOL revealed on Monday that the South American Championship will return to Brazil, which is also the venue for the last event of 2019.

Due to the severity of the coronavirus pandemic and the continuing social unrest in the latter case, Argentina and Colombia have both withdrew from their hosting duties and made last-minute changes.

Say what?

“Brazil’s America’s Cup is confirmed,” Ramos wrote on Twitter.
