From Brazil to Argentina: the 2022 South American Cup will have its final match at the Mario Alberto Kempes in Córdoba

The final of the Copa Sudamericana 2022 is scheduled for October 1 and already has a new venue. The second highest club tournament in South America will be played at the Mario Alberto Kempes stadium in Córdoba – Argentina – replacing Brasilia, chosen in principle.

The change of venue was requested by the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) considering that the general elections in that country will be held the following day, Sunday, October 2.

The new venue was agreed upon by the members of the Conmebol Council given the impossibility of carrying out the program at the Mané Garrincha World Cup stadium in the Brazilian capital.

Córdoba already hosted the definition of the 2020 South American Cup when Argentina’s Defense and Justice champion was consecrated. Both the tournament and the final could not have an audience in the stadiums due to the covid-19 pandemic.

The Copa Sudamericana is a tournamentincreasingly consolidated in the continent and with a growing global impact”Conmebol said in a statement.

“The sustained increase in prizes for participating and winning clubs, the increasing reach of broadcasts and the high level of competition of the teams are factors that show the expansion of this continental tournament”, the entity pointed out.

The contest will distribute 60 million dollars and the champion of the 2022 edition will pocket a prize of 5 million dollars, one million more than the purse that Athletico Paranaense won when they won the 2021 tournament. In the group stage, all participating teams received $900,000.
