One of the most important soccer tournaments in the world is coming to the United States.

The South American soccer confederation CONMEBOL announced today that it will join with the North American and Caribbean confederation CONCACAF for a special edition of the Copa America in 2016. The tournament, dubbed the Copa America Centennial, is being played to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Copa America - the tournament that has served as South America's regional championship since 1916.

The United States will host the 16-team tournament, which will include six teams from CONCACAF (North America, Central America, and the Caribbean) and 10 from CONMEBOL (South America). The United States and Mexico will be automatic entrants in the tournament, with the other four CONCACAF teams being determined by order of finish at the 2015 Gold Cup.

The tournament will be played in between the regularly-scheduled editions of the Copa America in 2015 (hosted by Chile) and 2019 (hosted by Brazil).
