Great Idea: Cup Of The Americas

Since tha Copa América has decreased in importance since the CONMEBOL qualifiers are played in one big group and has been reduced to being a training ground for young substitute players, and since the Gold Cup is even pointless and nobody watches it, it would be a sensitive idea to organize one big bicinfederational tournament called the Copa de las Américas. The winner of it would qualify to the Confederation's Cup as winner of its confederation and the team from the other confederation which has advanced the furthest in the competition will also be proclaimed the champion of its confederation and will therefore also go to the CC. The throphies of Champion of each confederation and of the biconfederational champions would be held in the same stadium after the final, with all of the involved teams present. The winner of the competition, logically, will be both biconfederational champions and champions of its confederation and will recieve two throphies. If two or more teams of the same confederation all go out at the same level of the competition and then no team of that confederation remains, then the champion of that confederation will be decided in a match between the two best of those teams (based on their tournament's points and goal average), which would be held the same day of the 3rd place match or inmediately before the final and will have its own ceremony.

Or you could forget about awarding 3 cups and instead awarding only 1, but still sending the other team to the CC.

8 teams from South America will qualify directly, based on the results of the last WC qualifying campaign. The 6 teams of the last CONCACAF hexagonal round will also be there. Perú, Bolivia and the rest of the Caribbean nations would play a short qualifying tournament in some Caribbean or Central American Nation or in Perú or up there in La Paz.

Or is this a bad idea?

Well not .... a bad situation...My idea of bringing Copa America back to LIFE again its xtremelly simple.....We play it every four years and 6 months before the world cup...We play it in a different country in S america (Like we do it now) every four years..We play it for a month to 5 weeks...and the TOP 4 TEAMS go to the next World Cup..That easy !!!!!

It would be better than the European cup of Nations, beacuse now its not just the honor of winning Copa America, but of ATTENDING the next years World Cup.

My 10 cents worth..

Bad Idea. Qualifying to the WC should not depend on the circumstances on one month. It should be a quite long campaign.

And if its played only 6 months before the WC, it would be considered only a small appendix of it.

Biconfederational tournament is the best option. We'll get to see how good Mexico and USA are playing against us, now that they say they're world powers in the sport.

Or, to make it simpler, the crappy caribbean and central american nations play their short qualifying tournament and then they play playoffs against Perú and Bolivia, respectively.

Just expand Copa América to 16 teams:

- all 10 CONMEBOL teams
- Mexico, USA and Costa Rica
- 3 other CONCACAF teams (1 from Central America, 1 from the Caribbean and another one from a mini-cup involving Canada + a Caribbean and a Central American team)

Then play it in the same format used in the Euro Championship.

I will be posting a separate thread about that, don't worry. Check the World Cup and the CONCACAF forums.

good idea.
but i say,the 10 southamerican teams added to the 6 teams from quals last stage in concacaf,and 2 more from the second stage with the best campaign.(i believe they were honduras and canada)
so,6 groups 3 teams each one,and best from each group advances to a final hexagonal,5 rounds.
