No World Cup?
Image
There's always Copa America


Consensus is that the US was robbed of the 2022 World Cup. Well, here comes the next best thing. And it even comes six years earlier!

The president of the Ecuadorean soccer federation, whose brother is on the CONMEBOL executive committee, told Mexican media that the USA is a potential candidate to host the 2016 Copa América in celebration of the South American confederation's 100-year anniversary.

Chiriboga noted that the special edition of the 2016 Copa América would feature 16 teams: 10 from South America and six from CONCACAF. Apparently there would be a qualification process to determine the six CONCACAF nations.

Four groups of four teams with Argentina, Brazil, Mexico and the USA in separate groups?
Fans will flock.

If US fans thought that was big news, the Ecuadorean chief also mentioned that the US would likely get an inivitation to participate in the 2015 Copa América in Brazil.

Copa América Centenario
Image

PASADENA, Calif. – Work toward creating a tournament for national teams across the Americas, to celebrate the 100th birthday of South America's confederation, is continuing, CONCACAF's president told a Rose Bowl gathering Wednesday afternoon.

Jeffrey Webb said CONCACAF, the governing body for soccer in North and Central America and the Caribbean, and CONMEBOL, which runs soccer in South America, are hoping FIFA will approve a joint Copa Centenario (Centenary Cup) for 2016.

“We are looking at possible tournaments in the future. One, of course, is 2016 with CONMEBOL,” said Webb, who was elected last May to succeed Jack Warner as CONCACAF's president. “We are continuing to explore, and, hopefully, we'll be able to get permission from FIFA so we will be able to have this tournament, not only in 2016, but all teams will be able to have their full selection [of first-choice players].”

A proposed 16-nation tournament, to be played in the United States, was revealed in October by CONMEBOL, but CONCACAF quickly pushed back on the announcement, saying it was premature. The event would include all 10 South American nations, the US, Mexico and four more CONCACAF nations.

Report:
2016 Copa America tournament in USA still in the works
stadiums selected

Image

The long-rumored blow-out centennial 2016 Copa América – which would be held in the United States and include the US and Mexican national teams – is apparently still in the works, and now we might know where some of the matches will be played.

Spanish outlet Marca has added more fuel to the fire by reporting that CONMEBOL is still finalizing plans with CONCACAF to host a special edition of the quadrennial tournament in 2016 to commemorate its 100-year anniversary.

Marca has also allegedly identfied six stadiums where games will be played: the Rose Bowl, Stanford Stadium, MetLife Stadium, Florida Citrus Bowl, RFK Stadium and Reliant Stadium.

Copa America Centenario a go?
CONCACAF, CONMEBOL to make "historic" joint announcement


The long-rumored Copa América Centenario tournament in the United States looks like it's about to become a reality.

CONCACAF announced on Monday that the confederation will hold a joint press conference with CONMEBOL on Thursday "to make a historic announcement" in Miami, the home base of CONCACAF.

Reports of the South American federation holding its biggest international tournament on US soil – which would include both the US and Mexican national teams – have been circulating since 2012, with various degrees of political wrangling supposedly holding up the process.

official:
Copa América will be held on US soil in special centennial tournament in 2016

Image

Finally, it is official: The Copa América is coming to the United States in 2016.

The 45th edition of the South American championship for national teams, to be held on the 100th anniversary of the inaugural tournament in 1916, will take place outside of South America for the first time ever.

It will be hosted by the US as part of an agreement between CONMEBOL (the South American confederation) and CONCACAF (the confederation for North and Central America and the Caribbean) that will see the 10 South American teams joined by six teams from the North American region.

23 US cities identified as potential sites for 2016 Copa America Centenario
Image

The list of possible venues reportedly came up during a CONMEBOL Executive Committee meeting, and the expectation is that the number of cities will be reduced.

The document produced by Globo shows 11 cities in one color: Seattle, Los Angeles, Kansas City, Dallas, Houston, Tampa, Nashville, Philadelphia, New York, Boston and Washington, D.C.

Another 12 cities were highlighted in a different shade: San Francisco, San Diego, Phoenix, Denver, St. Louis, Indianapolis, Chicago, Detroit, Cleveland, Baltimore, Charlotte and Jacksonville.
