It’s a summer for sofa-bound soccer fans to savour. With Euro 2020 in full flow on the other side of the world, its South American equivalent will be taking place at the same time.
Read on for full details on how to get a live stream of every Copa America 2021 match no matter where you are in the world with our guide below.
While the Euro’s can boast having the likes of Ronaldo, Harry Kane and Kylian Mbappé on show, the Copa America can argue it will have the game’s biggest entertainers showing off their skills, with Neymar, Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez all set to grace the tournament.

The stand-in host nation are the pre-tournament favorites, and will be looking to retain the trophy having beaten Peru in the 2019 final two years ago.
Out to topple their big rivals will be Argentina, who are looking to win the trophy for the first time since 1993, with Lionel Messi desperately hoping to lead his side to glory in what could be the Barcelona star’s last appearance in the tournament.
