The Copa América Centenario 2016 was a resounding success in the United States. So much so that reports suggesting the country are currently doing work behind the scenes to ensure a similar event in 2020.

The proposition made by the US is to run an extra tournament much like the Centennial Cup last year. It would likely take place in 2020 and would not interfere with the Copa, which will be held in September 2019.
