Alejandro Domínguez, President of Conmebol, said that the realization of the America Cup it is still standing, he told Caracol Radio.
America Cup: At no time did the president of Argentina question the Copa América. There is nothing official either. On the contrary, it is a reaffirmation, we work with protocols, with hotels, with migration. The Cup will be carried out respecting the health policies implemented by the governments.

The public: it would be nice if there were public, at least in a smaller number, but if not, let’s go with the Cup. The idea is to do it, that the games can be played and that is what we work on.
Player loans: yes, in Europe It has been said that they would not lend to South American players, but we are working towards that. Our plan is that through associations we can reach the players so that they have the option of getting vaccinated. Once summoned, Europe cannot object to the arrival of its players because the vaccination has already been completed.
Vaccines: He is thinking that the vaccines will arrive in Uruguay on Wednesday and then they will be sent to the countries so that the players arrive immunized at the Copa América.
More purchase: Women’s football is included in this first phase, but you have to show professionalism and seriousness. We wanted to buy 150,000 vaccines, but they only gave us 50,000 to guarantee the America’s Cup, they did not give them for free. Therefore, we request to buy more, another batch, but we will continue working on that.
A Super League in America? There is no need. They work with the Libertadores and the Suramericana and that bears fruit. We are handing out $ 229 million in club competitions. When I assumed the total was only 70 million, it is more than three times from 2016 to 2021. There is more work, we have to work more, strengthen the member associations and professionalize the management of the clubs.
