Yeah yet more soccer news!
Announced today that USA will host the 2016 Copa America -- but a special version of it. Copa America is the SOUTH American championship, every 4 years -- Brazil, Argentina, etc. Usually has very compelling matches. US has participated as a "guest" in the past, but not the last 10 yrs or so (at least). It's held on a rotating basis around the South American countries.
The 2016 is the 100 ANNIVERSARY of the Copa. So to celebrate, what else, they are leaving South America entirely. They will hold it in the US, and besides 10 South American teams, they'll add USA, Mexico, and 4 North American / Carribbean teams.
On top of that, it'll be held the same time as the 2016 Euro (Europe's similar competition). Will jam the TVs with compelling games.
This will be a really huge event when it gets here.
