Brazil deny Copa America plans

23 February 2008 19:36

The Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) have ruled out any possibility of the country staging the 2011 Copa America.On Friday, the Estado de Sao Paulo newspaper reported the CBF board were going to try to host the tournament in order to test their new stadiums ahead of the 2013 Confederations Cup and the 2014 World Cup.

But in a press release, the CBF denied they had any chance of hosting the competition and said they respected the South American Football Confederation's (Conmebol) decision to give the tournament to Argentina, according to the rotation system established after the last year's Copa America in Venezuela.

The press release read: "The news published by Estado de Sao Paulo is not true. CBF president Ricardo Teixeira confirmed that the organisation accepts and will respect the Conmebol criteria that dictate Argentina will have the right to hold the next championship."
