"to accept the candidacy of Argentina and Colombia as co-organizers for the 2020 edition of Copa America, under under the concept of 'bringing South American football closer to its supporters'".

This will be the fourth edition of the famous South American tournament in 5 years, after those of 2015 and 2016, both won by Chile, and that of 2019 to be held in a few months in Brazil (June 14 to July 7). The objective is then to follow the Euro calendar, with a period of four years.

The Conmebol has also announced that it has refused the creation, proposed by the United States, of a new tournament bringing teams from the south and north of the continent in a new format, citing the desire to highlight the Copa America and its 103 years of history rather than replacing it with a new format. It also states that an invitation was sent to Concacaf so that four of its associate members (four North American nations) could participate in future editions of the Copa America, as was the case in particular during the Centennial edition in 2016, organized in the United States. An invitation that has been refused.

While waiting to meet in the summer of 2020 on the grasslands of Argentina and Colombia, the stars of South American football will unravel at the end of the current season in Brazil. A major opportunity for all these selections to catch up after a missed 2018 World Cup, where no South American team has passed the quarter-finals. A 2019 edition which, failing to involve North American selections, will host for the first time Japan and Qatar, as guests.
