After some trouble with the Paraguayan referees, we have a list of referees who will appear in Argentina in Copa America 2011:

Referees: Carlos Amarilla (PAR), Francisco Chacón (MEX/Concacaf guest), Salvio Fagundes (BRA), Raúl Orozco (BOL), Enrique Osses (CHI), Sergio Pezzotta (PAR), Walter Quesada (CRC/Concacaf guest), Victor Rivera (PER), Wilmar Roldan (COL), Roberto Silvera (URU), Roberto Silvera (URU), Juan Soto (VEN), Carlos Vera (ECU).

The tournament will be held in Argentina from 2 July to 24 July.
The host is set in Group A with Bolivia, Costa Rica and Colombia. In Group B, Brazil and Paraguay are the favourites against Venezuela and Ecuador, whereas the Group C seems to be the highlight in the group stage. With Chile, Mexico and Uruguay there are three WC 2010 teams, Peru may have a small outsider chance as their striker Jeff Farfán (Schalke 04) will miss due to injury.
The final will be in Buenos Aires (El Monumental) with maximal 65.645 visitors.

Naturally, the appointments during the tournament will be published here.
