What! Spain, Portugal, France And Italy To Feature In Copa America 2019
It said a meeting of CONMEBOL officials in the coming weeks would decide whether the tournament will be expanded from its current 10-team format.
One proposal is to create a 12-team competition featuring CONMEBOL’s 10 South American nations plus Mexico and the USA.
“But there is also an idea to further increase the number of participants and include Latin European countries,” Globoesporte said, adding that Japan had also shown interest in taking part.
The 2019 Copa America will be the last to be played in an odd year. From 2020, the tournament will be held in the same four-year cycle as the UEFA European Championship.
