Maracana Stadium in Rio de Janeiro will host the Copa America 2021 final.

It is the second Copa final in a row that the iconic venue will host, having last been the stage for the 2019 Copa America final, and the third time overall.

Situated in the Maracana region of Rio de Janeiro, the stadium is one of the biggest football grounds in the world and has played host to two World Cup finals as well as the Olympics.

First opened in 1950, its current capacity comes in at just under 80,000 for football matches, but the venue remarkably held nearly 200,000 spectators in the past.
