Copa América

The 2016 Copa América Centenario, referred to in English as the 2016 Centennial Copa America, took place in the USA from 03 June until 26 June 2016. All ten men's national teams of the South American Football Confederation (CONMEBOL) will be joined by six Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF) teams in Latin America's most prestigious soccer competition. The 2016 Copa América will be held in celebration of the centenary of CONMEBOL and the Copa América, and is to be the first Copa América hosted outside of Latin America.


The Copa América has its origins in 1916 – making it a tournament with a longer tradition than the FIFA World Cup and the UEFA European Championship. Please, follow these links for epa's coverage of the Copa América 2016.
