As much as Argentina and Colombia remain firm with their positions of hosting the Copa América 2021, the health crisis due to the coronavirus on Argentine soil and the social crisis on Colombian soil open the option for other countries, such as Chile, to host the tournament continental.
In that sense, the president of the ANFP, Pablo Milad, reaffirmed the commitment to the chance to receive the contest, which will be held from June 13 and where the Red will open the fires against the Albiceleste.
“I have great respect for the president of the Colombian Federation. If it happens, we are ready to organize the America’s Cup. The Government has shown its willingness, but no more than that, “acknowledged the helmsman of the Quilín body in conversation with TNT Sports.
“We have not had direct communication, but I have spoken with the president of Conmebol, and he knows our position. We have no problem doing a tournament like the America’s Cup. We have the structure and organization“he added.
On the possibility of hosting the public in stadiums during the pandemic, Milad said: “The pity I have is that people cannot go to the stadium. Without fans, football is not the same. I am very optimistic that the public can return. We have delivered to Minsal two proposals with a capacity of 30 percent and that vary in relation to the stage in which the commune is in which the game is played. “
“Infections increased and this was on hold. Now there is already a large percentage of vaccinated people and we hope that it will increase in the next month. In addition, we are one of the leagues with the lowest percentage of positivity in PCR tests, with 0.17 percent in the last tournament, “he completed.
