Copa America Champions List

The Copa América is the premier men’s football tournament in which the national teams of CONMEBOL or the Confederation of South American Football participate. Established in 1916, it was known as the South American Football Championship (Campeonato Sudamericano de Fútbol) until 1975.

It is the oldest continental football competition, and the second oldest international football competition after the Olympic football tournament. Since the 1990s, teams from North America and Asia have also been invited to participate.

Since 1993, the tournament has typically featured 12 teams – all 10 CONMEBOL teams plus two additional teams from other confederations. Eight of the ten CONMEBOL national teams have won the tournament at least once in its 46 stages since the event’s inauguration in 1916, with only Ecuador and Venezuela yet to win.
