Copa Sudamericana final leaves Brazil due to elections OCN News

SAO PAULO (AP) — South American soccer body CONMEBOL has moved this year’s Copa Sudamericana final from the Brazilian capital of Brasilia to Cordoba, Argentina.

CONMEBOL said in a statement on Thursday that the change was requested by the Brazilian football confederation due to the country’s first round of general elections scheduled for October 2, a day after the final of the club tournament.

This year’s final will take place at the Mario Alberto Kempes Stadium. The same venue hosted the tournament final in 2020, when the COVID-19 pandemic prevented fans from watching an all-Argentina match between winners Defensa y Justicia and Lanus.
