Report: CONCACAF Request Entry Into The Copa America

The CONCACAF head has revealed that his federation were seeking to create a 16-team mixed 'Copa Americas'.

The 2015 Copa America could for the first time include the entire American continent, after North American governing body CONCACAF made a formal request to FIFA to be included in the South American tournament.

Under preliminary proposals, six North and Central American teams would join the 10 CONMEBOL members in the cup, which could be renamed the Copa Americas. Currently teams such as Mexico and the United States have participated in the Copa, but only in a highly controversial guest role.

CONCACAF head Chuck Blazer confirmed in an interview with Sports Illustrated that the idea had been considered for a long time in the organization, but that this was the first time it had been officially approved and put forward. The official however also stated that the economic interests of North American sides would also have to be protected.

“Other configurations might lend themselves to being possible,” he said. “Economic parameters would need to be met. The Gold Cup is the main source of revenue to support the youth programs and competitions that we do. If we did [a Copa Americas], we would have to see how it would replace what currently exists.”

Adiós al sueño chileno: La Copa América 2015 será en Brasil

Miércoles, 24 de Noviembre de 2010


Los brasileños no quisieron renunciar al año en que les correspondía organizar el certamen continental, por lo que serán sede en cinco años más. Chile organizará la versión de 2019. En tanto, las eliminatorias tendrán el mismo calendario que en 2002, 2006 y 2010.
