2016 Copa America in the US?

"South American soccer governing body CONMEBOL will hold a special Copa America tournament in 2016 in the United States to commemorate the organization's 100th year.

CONMEBOL said at a meeting of its executive committee in the Argentine capital Wednesday that the tournament would include the 10 South American confederation teams, plus the United States, Mexico and four others from the CONCACAF region, which comprises North and Central America and the Caribbean."


Man I can't believe I missed this bit of news, has anyone else not seen it? Hopefully they have some games in Chicago or Phoenix. If this happens 2016 has the potential to be an awesome summer for football - watch Euro 2016 in the morning, then switch over to Copa America in the evening. Maybe they should just dump the Gold Cup and permanently join COMEMBOL in a combined competition, a true Copa America.

Sounds awesome from American perspective.

From a Latin American perspective I think this is idiotic. It's the South American competition, USA is invited to join.

As for a combining Copa America and Gold Cup, I think the idea has some merit. Make a real qualification phase like with the UEFA European Cup.

USA & Mexico out classed by Argentina and Chile. I feel we would put up better fights
