Originally, Copa America is a 12-team tournament, played in 2 phases; group and the knock-out stage. The confederation seeds the top 3 teams based on the FIFA ranking system. The remaining are randomly selected to fill up the group.
There are 3 groups of 4 teams each. The top 2 teams qualify automatically for the knock-out stage. Copa America uses the round-robin tournament system to get the best teams per group who progresses to the knock-out stages.
The best 2 teams that finished in position 3 fill in the remaining 2 slots. The number of points, goal difference and the total number of goals form the elimination criteria for these 2 teams. At the knock-out stage (quarter-finals, semi-finals and the finals,) the tournament uses the single-elimination system to get the winner. If the winner does not come out during the 90 minutes of play, the teams go through extra time and a penalty shoot-out.
Uruguay is the most successful country in the history of the Copa America Championship with 15 titles. They are closely followed by Argentina, which has 14 trophies. Brazil completes the top 3 with 9 Copa America trophies. However, in the last decade, Chile took home 2 titles (2015 and 2016), compared to Brazil’s 1(2019) and Uruguay’s 1 (2011). Other winners include Paraguay and Peru (2 times) and Colombia and Bolivia (once).
