COPA AMERICA 2016
COPA AMERICA HISTORY
The Copa América (Spanish and Portuguese for “America Cup”),formerly known as the South American Football Championship, is an international football competition contested between the men’s national football teams of CONMEBOL, determining the continental champion of South America. It is the oldest international continental football competition.
The current tournament format, established in 1993, involves twelve teams competing at venues in a host nation over a period of one month. As the confederation has only ten members, national teams from other FIFA confederations are invited to fill two other spaces, creating a 12-member group stage with three groups of four teams. From 1993 through 2015, five teams from CONCACAF and one team from AFC have participated. The nine appearances by Mexico (CONCACAF) are the most appearances for a non-CONMEBOL team, while their two runner-up finishes are the highest for an invitee.
In 44 tournaments since 1916, eight of the ten CONMEBOL national teams have won the title, with only Ecuador and Venezuela yet to win. Uruguay has the most championships, with 15, while the current champion is Chile.
The Copa América is one of the most prestigious and most widely viewed sporting events in the world.The highest finishing member of CONMEBOL has the right to participate in the next edition of the FIFA Confederations Cup, but is not obligated to do so
Copa América Centenario(COPA AMERICA 2016)
The Copa América Centenario (English: Centennial Copa America)is a scheduled international men’s association football tournament due to be held in the United States in 2016.

The tournament will be the 45th edition of Copa América since its inception in 1916, will be held as part of an agreement between CONMEBOL (the South American football confederation) and CONCACAF (the football confederation for North and Central America and the Caribbean) as a special edition between the usual four-year cycle, and will feature an expanded field of 16 teams (an increase from the usual 12), with all ten teams from CONMEBOL and six teams from CONCACAF. The winner of this tournament will not receive an invitation to the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup, as Chile have already qualified by winning the 2015 Copa América.
