South American Football Confederation (CONMEBOL) Board of Directors

Regardless of where you are from or your upbringing, the one thing that brings everyone together in South America is soccer. Copa America, the biggest international men’s soccer championship in South America, cannot be successful without the help of CONMEBOL, South America’s football ruling body. With the upcoming 2020 Copa America in Colombia, members will be tasked with addressing not only how to properly host one of the biggest soccer tournaments in the world, but also the domestic issues that are plaguing the country. While each Copa America should be on a four year basis, CONMEBOL has decided to go from one in 2019 to 2020. How will you be able to prepare for the Copa America 2020 in such a short amount of time?
