Only 28 days remain until the return of the South American competition and the wait is fading amid organizational issues that remain to be resolved.
In less than a month we will have the largest continental contest in South America again. Is that September 15 will be the official return of the Libertadores Cup 2020.
However, despite the announced date and the confirmed calendar, in the absence of 28 days, only four out of ten countries have the approval of their governments to carry out the tournament and the CONMEBOL protocol: Brazil, Paraguay, Ecuador and Venezuela .
Some of the countries that have not yet given the go-ahead are just facing the return to practices such as Argentina or Bolivia, and even the location of certain teams is not yet confirmed (they have time until Thursday to define it) and others have generated controversy in their local tournaments, as is the case of Binacional, which despite playing the league in Lima, will be local in their city.
Despite this, the South American Confederation does not intend to back down and will resume the tournament with the stipulated dates. The final is the only one that does not have its date confirmed, but it is expected to take place at the end of January, at the Maracana in Rio de Janeiro.
