Copa America 2021: How it works
One of the 10 South American nations that make up the CONMEBOL Football Association will be crowned continental champion at the Copa America. The 10 teams were divided into two groups of five, with the top four finishers in each group advancing to the quarterfinals. Then followed a straight knockout phase with a single elimination starting with the quarterfinals.
Group level: After round-robin group play, the top four finishers in each of the two groups advanced to the quarterfinals and the team to fifth place in each group was eliminated.
Decisive phase: Knockouts with a single elimination began with the quarterfinals. The four teams that qualified from group A faced the four teams that advanced from group B with respective top seeds facing the lowest seeds in the opposite group: 1A vs. 4B, 1B mod 4A, 2A mod 3B, 2B mod 3A.
