Tour Summary

Join the Green & Gold Army for this once in a generation opportunity to support the Socceroos at the 47th edition of the Copa America. Hosted by Argentina and Colombia from 12th June until 12th July 2020, the Socceroos will play five group matches to determine if they will qualify for the knockout phase of the event.

The Copa America 2020 will feature two groups of six nations. The national teams of Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Venezuela plus one of the invited nations (Australia or Qatar) will be in one group based in Colombia. The second group will feature Argentina, Uruguay, Bolivia, Paraguay, Chile and the other invited nation based in Argentina. The top four teams from each group advance to the quarter finals.

Australia will find out which group/zone it will play in (Colombia or Argentina) at the official Copa America tournament draw on 3rd December. GGArmy has made tour preparations in Colombia and Argentina to cover each scenario. We are ready to go and can’t wait for the official draw of Australia’s group, opponents and match dates/cities.

GROUP Stage Summary 

We have two Group Stage Tour options – 15-day (x3 Socceroos matches) and 21-day (x5 Socceroos matches) tours. The Group Stage tour/s will begin in either Buenos Aires (Argentina) or Bogotá (Colombia) subject to which group the Socceroos are drawn to play. This is a perfect opportunity to take in all the tourism highlights that Argentina or Colombia have to offer while passionately supporting the Socceroos at the Copa America 2020.

KNOCKOUT Stage Summary 

On this 13-day football and tourism experience you will attend 3 finals (Quarter Final x1, Semi Final x1, & Final). Should the Socceroos qualify for the Knockout phase we will see all Socceroos matches. This tour will begin in either Buenos Aires (Argentina) or Bogotá (Colombia) subject to which group the Socceroos are drawn to play and our likely finals pathway. This is a perfect opportunity to take in all that Argentina and/or Colombia has to offer and to experience the best of elite South American football and atmosphere (& with a bit of luck experiencing the Socceroos at the pointy end of Copa America 2020).

COMBO Tour Summary 

On this 34-day South American football odyssey, you will attend 8 matches (all 5 Socceroos group matches including a Quarter Final, Semi Final and Final) while experiencing all the tourism highlights of Argentina and/or Colombia. What better way to experience the Socceroos at the Copa America 2020 than with the GGArmy for the entire tournament. Vamos!

Note: Itinerary overviews will be published in the days after the final match draw has been undertaken by COMENBOL.

GGArmy will ensure our tour program is scheduled so we arrive in all match cities hosting the Socceroos at least the day prior to the match. We will also work closely with the Football Federation Australia to obtain access to Socceroos training at least in the group phase of the tour.

The Destinations: Argentina & Colombia

Argentina

Beautiful, defiant and intense, Argentina seduces with its street side tango, wafting grills, fútbol, gaucho culture and the mighty Andes. It’s one formidable cocktail of wanderlust. From mighty Iguazú Falls in the subtropical north to the thunderous, crackling advance of the Glaciar Perito Moreno in the south, Argentina is home to a vast natural wonderland. Diversity is a big part of it. The country that boasts the Andes’ highest snowbound peaks is also home to rich wetlands, rust-hued desert, deep-blue lakes, lichen-clad Valdivian forests and Patagonia’s arid steppes.

Colombia

Soaring Andean summits, unspoiled Caribbean coast, enigmatic Amazon jungle, cryptic archaeological ruins and cobbled colonial communities. Colombia boasts all of South America’s allure, and more. Led by Cartagena’s extraordinarily preserved old city, Colombia offers an off-the-radar treasure trove of wonderfully photogenic cobblestoned towns and villages that often feel like they hail from a different century. Unweathered Barichara and sleepy Mompós feel like movie sets, while whitewashed Villa de Leyva appears stuck in 16th-century quicksand.

Our tour packages are structured to meet operational and guest requirements. This means that there are ‘optional’ items relevant to the tour that are not included in the packages listed above and will be an additional cost if you choose to add them. We have listed them below so you can understand them prior to booking on our tour.

Group International Flights
International Flights are not included in the package price and are an additional cost. We will provide a group international flight and arrival/departure transfer service which can be added to your selected package. Please contact us if interested.

Match Tickets

We can secure all Match Tickets for all tour participants. As Match Ticket information is not available, we will confirm costs when details are confirmed.

South American Continental/Domestic Air/Rail Services

As the match draw has not been completed, we don’t know which cities Australia will be playing our group matches or the likely pathway should the Socceroos qualify for the knockout phase of the event. Thus any domestic air and/or rail services that will be utilised to transfer between cities will be added to your booking when arrangements are confirmed.

Note it is compulsory to add the internal transportation supplement when available

Cultural & Sightseeing Day Tours
Just like all our other major tournament tours, on days that Australia is not playing a carefully selected suite of guided cultural/historical sightseeing day tours will be offered to all tour participants/guests as an optional additional purchase. Our optional sightseeing day tours are a great way to enjoy our destination’s tourism highlights with other tour participants, building on friendships.
