Brazil will host the CONMEBOL Copa América soccer tournament June 14-July 7. Attendees from over 100 countries are expected at the event. The Copa America tournament is also expected to attract a considerable number of foreign nationals from Chile, Argentina, Colombia, Peru, Uruguay, the US, Germany, Spain, and Bolivia. Games will be played in six stadiums across five major cities. The current security landscape in these major metropolitan areas is cause for concern for foreign nationals, although new technology and the deployment of extra security forces will mitigate potential threats.
The Women’s World Cup (WWC) will take place in France, June 7-July 7, with matches being held in nine cities across the country. Teams representing 24 nations will take part in 52 matches during the competition; 1.3 million match tickets have been sold, and at least 100,000 foreign nationals are likely to travel to France to attend related events.
