Copa América

Copa América

Another popular South American soccer tournament is the Copa America and being based in that part of the world you will probably not be too surprised to learn it is part of the CONMEBOL tournaments, that are huge popular with fans of the sport.

It was founded over a century ago in 1916 and has gone on to become one of the most watched series of soccer matches in that part of the world.

The format is quite complicated for depending on how the season progresses there are going to be either 12 or 16 teams taking part in to, and one related soccer tournament is the FIFA Confederations Cup.

As you would expect, having been around for so many years, there have been lots of different teams that have won the cup and title over the years, but at the time of me putting together this guide is was Chile that were the current champions and over the history of this tournament they have so far won it twice.

But one team that really has excelled and proven to be a real team to be reckoned with is Uruguay, and to date they have won the title and the cup a total of 15 times, which is quite impressive it does have to be said!
