In 1916 Argentina held a tournament to celebrate their independence. Argentina, Chile, Uruguay and Brazil being the first participants of the tournament. It was known as Campeonato Sudamericano de Football and little that people know that it would be the first edition of what we today call the Copa America. It’s important to note that Uruguay won that first tournament.
After that, they played a tournament every second year up until the World Cup in Uruguay 1930. At that point since there was animosity between the federations of Uruguay and Argentina, the tournament was canceled. It wasn’t until 1939 when it was reinstated with Peru as hosts. From that point on, Copa America became more popular with every edition. That’s exactly why Copa America final odds are so popular with bookmakers.
