Do you guys think this format would be better for Copa America than the one currently used? First, no guest teams. Only CONMEBOL nations participate. Two groups, five teams each. Each team plays each other once during the group stage. Due to uneven number, each team would have one matchday "off" providing for five matchdays per group, four matches per team. Top three teams in each group advance to the next round. Quarterfinals: QF1: Group A #2 vs Group B #3 QF2: Group A #3 vs Group B #2 Semifinals: Group A #1 vs Winner QF2 Group B #1 vs Winner QF1 Winners of these games go to Championship, Losers go to Third Place Game The four teams who get eliminated in the Group Stage will have played 4 games. The two teams who get eliminated in the Quarterfinals will have played 5 games. The two teams who won their group will have played 6 games. The two teams who won in the Quarterfinals will have played 7 games. ---- It seems like this format would be more competitive and overall better than a 12 team competition. What do you guys think?
