Copa América should be for CONMEBOL teams only, they've just got to find out how to make a competitive format for 10 teams. That's for the official Copa America..

Besides that, for commemorative tournaments (like last year's Copa América Centenario) it would be a good idea to invite teams like Spain and Portugal (for historical reasons), but why asian teams? Just complete the 16 team selection with CONCACAF teams.

Are you aware of that that 5 invited teams out of 6 are confirmed?
Mexico, USA, China, Japan and Qatar will certainly participate in Copa 2019. And from 2020 it will be a mixed tournament with CONMEBOL and CONCACAF participants (just like Copa Centenario)


I'd probably stick with 10 teams. Split it into 1 group of 6 + 1 group of 5. Top team from group 1 + 2 in the final & 2nd place in group 1 + 2 into 3rd place. The rest are eliminated. Matches are played with those in the group. So for example, Brazil are paired with Chile, Paraguay, Venezuela, Peru, Bolivia. Brazil will play those 5 teams. As for the other group; Argentina, Ecuador, Colombia, Bolivia, Uruguay. Argentina to play those 4 teams. Yes, it's weird, but it kind of works. (Ish...)
