COPA (NORTH) AMERICA? Report: U.S. could become permanent home
Copa America Centenario marks the first time the South America championship has been conducted in the U.S. but it will not be the last, according to an ESPNDeportes report Monday.
The plan is to hold the Copa America in the U.S. every four years.
“There are only a few little details missing,” a CONCACAF source was quoted as saying.
Before the tournament kicked off with Colombia’s 2-0 win over the U.S. in Santa Clara, Calif., Friday, CONMEBOL officials had planned to wait until after the event to make a decision on the future. But after evaluating hotels, stadiums and other factors, there is a chance the timetable has been moved up.
Copa America Centenario is expected to provide greater profits for CONMEBOL than the last two tournaments, in Argentina and Chile. Among the “details” to be settled are more tickets for CONMEBOL’s federations, plus logistics regarding training sites and travel.
