Copa America Free Bets

It's not just Euro 2016 that's going to keep us football fans busy in June, there's also the Copa America tournament. The top South American sides plus hosts USA and Haiti will be battling it out as Chile try to retain the title they won last year. The tournament usually runs in a four year cycle like the Euros but that's all changed of late. The 2015 tournament was followed by another one the following year to mark the 100th anniversary of the first one held. 

This year Brazil are the hosts but there isn't a four-year wait until the next one as 2020 will see another Copa America. The plan is for it to be held the same year as the European Championships from now on.

This year will see prolific Barcelona duo Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez on opposing teams as well as a host of other huge stars, this tournament has all the credentials to rival the Women's World Cup and the African Cup of Nations that take place at the same time.
