Where is the Copa America 2021 final being held?

The Copa America 2021 final will be held at Brazil's iconic Maracana stadium.

The stadium, situated in Rio de Janeiro, has gone through a handful of renovations since it was first built in 1950, which have decreased the attendance over time.

For the final of the 1950 World Cup, 199,854 people are said to have filled the Maracana - a record attendance it has not since matched.

It has comfortably held more than 100,000 people on several occasions for high profile domestic and international matches but its capacity is now limited to 80,000.

The Maracana is still the largest stadium in Brazil and the second largest in South America only to the Estadio Monumental in Peru.

Brazil will face either Argentina or Colombia in the final of the 2021 Copa America, with Neymar relishing the prospect of taking on their fierce rivals.

"I want Argentina, I am cheering them on," said Neymar. "I have friends there and in the final Brazil will win."
