AFA president Claudio TAPIA has confessed that Argentina want to host the 2020 Copa America.
Changes are coming to the Copa America format. This year’s edition will be the last time that the tournament would be held on an odd year and moving forward, it would have a four year format. Meaning that there would be a tournament in 2020, 2024 and so on and so forth.
There were rumors that next year’s tournament would be held in the United States, as it was in 2016 but that has been shut down. Claudio TAPIA has come out and stated the following:
“We know that it won’t be held in the United States as it was mentioned and we have started to talk. The dream (to host) the 2020 Copa America is there. We’ve made an informal request and we are starting on the formal request.”
