Copa America 2021: How it works
One of the 10 South American nations that comprise the CONMEBOL soccer confederation will be crowned continental champion at the Copa America. The 10 teams were split into two groups of five, with the top four finishers in each group advancing to the quarterfinals. That was followed by a straight single-elimination knockout phase starting with the quarterfinals.
Group stage: After round-robin group play, the top four finishers in each of the two groups advanced to the quarterfinals and the fifth-place team in each group was eliminated.
Knockout stage: The single-elimination knockouts began with the quarterfinals. The four teams qualifying from Group A faced the four teams advancing from Group B with respective top seeds facing the lowest seeds in the opposite group: 1A vs. 4B, 1B vs. 4A, 2A vs. 3B, 2B vs. 3A.
