Copa America Centenario 2016

CONMEBOL determined to go ahead with centenary Copa America.
----------------------------------

ASUNCION, Sept 11 (Reuters) - South America's football confederation CONMEBOL are determined to go ahead with next year's planned centenary Copa America despite the corruption scandal which has embroiled the tournament.

CONMEBOL is jointly organising it with CONCACAF, its counterpart for North, Central America and the Caribbean, and said that the two confederations would meet next Thursday Sept 17th in Mexico City to discuss their plans for the tournament.

"Both organisations are maintaining their firm intention to go ahead with the tournament to celebrate 100 years of the founding of the South American Football Confederation," said CONMEBOL in a statement.

The original plan was for the tournament, officially known as the Copa Centenario, to be played in the United States, featuring all 10 South American national teams, plus six from the CONCACAF region.

However, the plans were thrown into disarray when United States authorities indicted 14 soccer officials and sports marketing executives on corruption charges at the end of May.

The core charges focused on the alleged payment of bribes to secure commercial and broadcasting contracts for major tournaments in the Americas, including the Copa Centenario.

Seven of the 14 were arrested at a luxury Zurich hotel two days before FIFA's annual Congress, plunging soccer's governing body into the worst crisis in its 111-year history.

Those included Eugenio Figueredo and Jeffrey Webb, who at the time were the respective CONMEBOL AND CONCACAF presidents.

Figueredo is still in a Swiss prison while extradition proceedings continue and Webb has already been extradited to the U.S. and been released on bail, having pleaded not guilty.

Media reports have suggested that one option is to stage the tournament in Colombia or Chile with fewer teams than originally planned.

Finally NEW news that make SENSE:

Conmebol takes control of rights for 2016 Copa America

SANTIAGO, Oct 16 (Reuters) - The South American football confederation has taken over the management of sponsorship and rebroadcast rights for the 2016 Centenary Copa America, the confederation (Conmebol) said on Friday.

The move sidelines Argentine company Datisa and removes another obstacle to hosting the tournament in the United States.

"Conmebol and Datisa have agreed to rescind all the commercial rights that Datisa had for the sale of sponsorship and rebroadcasts associated with the Centenary Copa America," a Conmebol statement said.

"Conmebol will take control of those commercial rights while they together with the CONCACAF and the United States Soccer Federation will identify new partners to sell the tournament's commercial rights through a new and transparent process."

Three of the main shareholders in Datisa were among those indicted by the U.S. in May during a crackdown on worldwide football corruption which has tarnished FIFA's reputation.

The U.S. indictment said the three men conspired to win and keep hold of lucrative media rights contracts from regional soccer federations through the payment of up to $110 million in bribes.

The three, Alejandro Burzaco, Hugo Jinkis and his son Mariano Jinkis, are all Argentine citizens.

Burzaco has been extradited to the United States and is out on bail after pleading not guilty. The Jinkis's have been released from house arrest but cannot stray from their places of residence longer than 24 hours without a judge's permission.

They have surrendered their passports while a judge seeks more information from U.S. authorities.

Their indictments were one of the reasons the future of the 2016 Centenary Copa America was thrown into doubt.

Another issue is whether heads of top Latin American confederations will travel to the U.S.. Some bosses are thought to fear arrest if they set foot in the country.

Although the Copa is usually contested every four years by teams from South America, a special centenary version was announced for next year with teams from all over the Americas.

The Copa America was first held in 1916 and is the oldest international tournament in the world.

Integra el Grupo D: Chile debutará con Argentina en la Copa Centenario

Este domingo se llevó a cabo el sorteo para la Copa América Centenario 2016. La selección chilena, actual campeón del torneo, quedó dentro del Grupo D, el cual compartirá junto a Argentina, Panamá y Bolivia. En el papel, el elenco de Juan Antonio Pizzi no debería tener mayores problemas para superar con tranquilidad la fase grupal del torneo continental.

El primer enfrentamiento de la ‘Roja’ será ante la ‘Albiceleste’, justamente el país al cual venció en la final de la edición pasada, cuando obtuvo el primer título de su historia. El duelo ante la escuadra liderada por Lionel Messi se jugará el próximo 6 de junio en Santa Clara a las 23:00 horas de Chile, el cual será un duelo clave en las aspiraciones del cuadro nacional.

La segunda estación de la ‘Roja’ será Foxborough, Boston, donde el equipo de Pizzi chocará contra Bolivia el 10 de junio a las 20:00 horas de Chile. El ‘Equipo de Todos’ cerrará su participación en el Grupo D ante Panamá. Este pleito que se disputará en Philadelphia está programado para el 14 de junio a las 21:00 horas de Chile.


El resto de los grupos quedó conformado de la siguiente manera: El Grupo A lo disputan Estados Unidos, Colombia, Costa Rica y Paraguay; el Grupo B queda conformado por Brasil, Ecuador, Haití y Perú; mientras el Grupo C lo integran México, Uruguay, Jamaica y Venezuela.

Cabe destacar que los dos mejores equipos de cada zona clasificarán a los cuartos de final, donde disputarán llaves eliminatorias en busca de encontrar al campeón centenario de América. La ‘Roja’ comienza desde hoy su camino en busca de conseguir su segundo título en su historia.

Bad news for Brazil ....

Barcelona to allow Neymar to play in Olympics but not Copa America

Barca only allowed Neymar to play in one official FIFA tourney (Copa) but as Dunga's wish, Neymar will be released to play for Olympic 2016

The mere existence of this tournament proves that South American football is a joke.

Big games are easy than the other games, unfortunately. Every times we have the control the games, under the control the games, during the games we had the some possibilities, some big chances, some big okazyons, something like that but what can I do, sometimes? And….it’s the football, that’s the football, something happened. Everything is something happened. - Fatih Terim

Terminaron picados: Uruguay cayó ante México en un caliente duelo

Domingo 05 junio, 2016

El cuadro ‘charrúa’ cayó por 3-1 en un áspero partido ante los ‘aztecas’ por el Grupo C de la Copa América Centenario. Ambas escuadras terminaron con 10 jugadores y dos goles de los ‘Aztecas’ sobre el final provocaron que la ‘Celeste’ las emprendiera contra el arbitraje.
