SAO PAULO, June 9. MasterCard Inc. has decided to temporarily remove its branding from Copa America in Brazil, although the payment company remains a sponsor of the soccer tournament, it said on Wednesday.

The move comes as Copa America is subject to criticism that it was moved to Brazil despite it having the second thousandth worst death of coronavirus outside the United States and India and third most.

In a statement to Reuters, MasterCard said it had not responded to its decision that Copa America would not activate its sponsorship after a cautious analysis of Copa America.
