Bogota is a 6-8 hour flight from Buenos Aires. Hilarious.

Why does everything have to be a joint these days? It's all about money now. Shame.

Would one of these countries have enough facilities and stadiums to host it themselves?

Both would. The Copa America is not the World Cup. The only country in South America who wouldn't be able to do it is Venezuela.

Seems very strange then. But one of the other bids was Australia, so it's not even the most daft idea put forward for it.

Confirmed, Colombia and Argentina are the 2 hosts.

It appears it's going to be a lot better than I originally imagined, although I still have my doubts.

Just like in the old days, they will divide the 2 into Merconorte and Mercosur. Merconorte plays in Colombia and Mercosur in Argentina.

This means Colombia, Peru, Ecuador, Brazil and Venezuela (Merconorte) make up 1 group, while Argentina, Chile, Paraguay, Uruguay and Bolivia (Mercosur) make up the other. I think there will be 2 invited teams as well.

I don't mind this format for 1 Copa, but I hope we don't stick with this as the randomness of the group draw is what makes it fun.

Luckily there will be no annoying 6-8 hour flights so often between Bogota and Buenos Aires. We'll see how it fares in the knockout games.

Not really. US, Mexico, and Canada have done a joint bid, and I know Mexico and US could do the World Cup on their own without issues. Not sure about Canada...

This was really the only way to do it. 

If they are smart, which so often is NOT the case, they would invite Mexico and USA every frickin year. Great for viewership and competition.

I think Canada can do it, they have a couple grounds suited for it. However, if there need to be more grounds built im not sure they'll want to xD

The Women's World Cup in 2015 was good practice.

I certainly hope those 2 are invited. Mexico at the very least has to go, if not the USA then some Central American team.

Canada doesn't seem to have the infacstructure requirements to do it alone, but they certainly COULD, but like you said, why would they want to?

Last year i heard they wanted to merge the Copa America and the Gold Cup, which would be a good idea to increase both viewership and revenue.

What's the time difference between the two? Would they even be on at a decent time?

Copa said know even though the US Soccer Federation was throwing money at it. Idiots.

The farthest is probably LA and Atlanta, which is 4 hours.

They're pretty stupid, yeah.

I have zero idea on the time different between South America and Australia...

Almost a whole day or a bit more between it and Argentina.

Hence why it would be weird hosting the Copa America there.

I'm still not sure why you are talking about Australia, I don't think anyone has mentioned it...

EDIT: You mentioned them because they were also bidding. Apologies, that had me confused, and I agree,....THAT makes zero sense.

So news.

Firstly, Qatar and Australia are the invitees. At least @Toinho will be a part of this thread now.

Secondly, the final will be 2 legs :rofl:

Isn't Qatar an invitee this year as well?

Why are there two Copa America's in 2 years? 

They are going to start making it every 4 years from 2020, so it won't be the year after the World Cup from now on. This year being the only exception. Not entirely sure the reason though.
