I really resent CONMEBOL for not sticking to the 16 team format they had for the 2016 copa. 4 groups of 4 teams, invite 4 teams like the USA, Mexico, and central american teams like Costa Rica and Panama. Now it's 2 groups of 6? Stupid format.

Why did they come with the idea of two detatched venues?
it's like the world cup would be played in Turkey and England at the same time...
also ridicolous they keep taking in non-american countries like Japan and Qatar...

To be fair the 2020 euro is in 12 different countries so 2 is nothing compared to that, lmao. From Baku, Azerbaijan to Dublin.

I agree with you. Seriously, who thought this was a good idea? The two countries don't even border each other. (About South Korea and Japan in the 2002 FIFA WC, those two countries are separated by a sea). This is why I've always been reluctant to support joint bids for the Olympics, FIFA World Cup, etc.. Plus, I bet they're running out of countries to fill the tournament spots for their new format. Any non-American countries are guaranteed to get themselves eliminated before the final round. This is also why I should be in favour of a Unified Copa America (CONCACAF and CONMEBOL).

Maybe a 24 team tournament? With some qualifiers that is needed and also giving the central American and the Caribbean islands a chance to qualify. :cheers:

The last ugly legacy from Platini, let's hope it will be just an experiment that will be never repeated...:eek:hno:

That was basically the 2016 copa centenario but with 16 teams. The USA offered it last month but COMNEBOL rejected it and went for this two nation format of 12 teams. SO STUPID.

Copa America draw decided with Australia and Qatar added to the mix



Lionel Messi will kick things off at the tournament next year which is split across two countries

Argentina will open the 2020 Copa America with a blockbuster clash against Chile in Buenos Aires.

In a rematch of this year's third-place play-off, which Argentina won as Lionel Messi and Gary Medel were sent off, the teams will meet again at the El Monumental on June 12 next year.

While the draw took place on Tuesday, the nations already knew almost all of their opponents with teams split into zones for next year's tournament in Argentina and Colombia.

However, Australia – playing at their first Copa America – were drawn into Group A, which features Argentina, Bolivia, Uruguay, Chile and Paraguay.
Qatar, the other invited nation, will meet Colombia, Brazil, Venezuela, Ecuador and Peru. Brazil will go into the tournament as defending champions after their success at home this year.

The Selecao beat Peru 3-1 in the 2019 Copa America final having also seen off Argentina and Paraguay on their way to the decider.
Qatar made their debut at the tournament this year, drawing their first match against Paraguay before falling to Colombia and Argentina.

Japan, the other invited nation, also failed to win any of its games as it was held to draws against Uruguay and Ecuador following a heavy 4-0 defeat against Chile in their opening match.

The Copa America has also previously invited Costa Rica, Haiti, Honduras, Jamaica, Mexico, Panama and the United States to compete in the tournament with El Tri finishing as runners up twice.

Following the 2020 Copa America, the tournament is set to be held every four years with the next edition scheduled for 2024.

Uruguay are the most successful nation when it comes to Copa America having won it 15 times, one more than next best Argentina.

Messi will be hoping his nation can lift the trophy again next year as the 2019 Ballon d'Or winner looks to secure some long awaited success with the national team.

Despite winning honours regularly with Barcelona, Messi is yet to win anything with Argentina's senior side, though he did claim a gold medal with the U23 team in 2008 Olympics and lifted the U20 World Cup in 2005.

Except two stadiums the rest is awful sorry :(

Last year in Brazil you had World cup stadiums for the edition and now you have second zone structures :|

Conmebol is an embarassment which prefers earns $$$$ rather let countries develop their structures and bid for host the tournament.

Sorry I didn't understand this part.

And with CONMEBOL's rotation policy for Copa America, nothing much can be done I think. 2024 edition will be in Ecuador and I don't think the stadiums and other infrastructures are that great compared to Argentina and Colombia's ones.

Ecuador has some very good stadiums. They will need to built 2 or 3 new stadiums in other cities apart Quito and Guayaquil.
