Copa America 2019: Schedule, Teams, Fixtures & Results, Hosts, Stadiums and Live Stream

The 46th edition of the Copa America will occur this year as South America’s best teams battle it out for the continental crown.

Heavyweights of world football, for example, Argentina and Brazil will lock horns, as well as the competition’s best team, Uruguay.

With probably the best players in the world on display, including Neymar and conceivably Lionel Messi, it boasts an exceptional appeal, with the continent’s Joga Bonito philosophy strongly imbued.

Ahead of the 2019 tournament, Goal brings people all that they have to know, including when it is, teams included, fixtures, results and more.

The 2019 Copa America is set to get going on June 14 and it will keep running for three weeks until the last on July 7.

Group games will complete on June 24 and there will be a three-day break before knockout fixtures are played from June 27.

Remarkably it will be the last Copa America tournament to be held on an odd year, with CONMEBOL starting a change to the scheduling.

From 2020 on, the Copa America will follow the same calendar as UEFA’s European Championship.

Who won the last Copa America?

Chile are the defending champions subsequent to winning the 2016 Copa America Centenario in the United States.

La Roja, then overseen by Juan Antonio Pizzi, defeated Argentina on penalties in the final. It was Chile’s second back to back title win following their maiden triumph in 2015.

After the sides couldn’t be separated in guideline or additional time, the game went to penalties and Chile triumphed 4-2 in the shootout, with Francisco Silva scoring the winning spot kick.

Lionel Messi, who failed to change over his spot kick, broadly retired in the aftermath. It was his third back to back defeat in the final of a noteworthy competition – having lost in the previous year’s Copa and the 2014 World Cup against Germany – and his fourth overall with Argentina.

“This is tough and a difficult time,” Messi said after the loss. “The first thing that comes to my mind and that I have thought is that the end has come for me and our team [Argentina].”

“It has been four finals — it just wasn’t for me unfortunately. I looked for it, and wanted it so bad, but it didn’t happen for me,”

The Barcelona star eventually reversed his decision and in this way contended in the 2018 World Cup, yet once more, without success.
