The Selection of Argentina, current champion of the Copa América 2021, and the Italy selection, champion of the last Eurocup, will star in a match in 2022 after an agreement of UEFA and Conmebol. This was made public through a statement published simultaneously on the entities’ social networks. The match will be played on June 1 next year in London.
In the statements it can be read that the stage will be in London, but they have not specified a stadium for next June 1, 2022. In addition, it was announced that a “shared office” will be opened in the English capital to coordinate both organizations at the beginning of that year.
“We are delighted to take advantage of our excellent relationship with CONMEBOL. Our strong desire to act together for the development of football and its benefits for society is further reflected in this new Memorandum of Understanding ”, said Ceferin, president of UEFA, in words collected by the aforementioned letter.
“I want to thank the members of the CONMEBOL Council who have supported this initiative with the greatest determination, and especially President Aleksander Čeferin and his team of collaborators, with whom we share the same vision on the strategic importance of our alliance”, indicated the president of CONMEBOL, Alejandro Domínguez.
By this date, it is also expected that both teams will have their most important players. This is because tournaments in Europe and America enter the typical hiatus in the middle of the year after having also played the final of the UEFA Champions League.
