We already play two Gold Cups per cycle so this would hardly require ending the Gold Cup, simply eliminating the needless second Gold Cup. I don't know why this is discussed in such zero-sum terms. First off we already play 2 Gold Cups, so they'll still have ample opportunity for international football if we drop the second tournament. Qualification to CONCACAF's 6 spots at Copa America can be determined by Gold Cup finish, giving every team in CONCACAF a fair chance to go to that tournament as well. Owing to CONMEBOL's 10 team membership, the Copa America is never for CONMEBOL teams only. 2 guest teams, usually from CONCACAF, are always invited to round out the numbers. The only thing this changes is the number of invitees and allows CONMEBOL an opportunity to grow the size, scope and profitability of their tournament, as UEFA has done with their own, in the only manner that they possibly can. In this manner it helps CONMEBOL. As for simply creating a new tournament, who would have any interest in what would likely be a bloated, watered down beast of a tourney that would have far more difficulty getting permanently placed on the FIFA calendar than this did; likely be of little to no value to the South American players who will have already played, or be about to play the Copa America, and thus be of zero value to me as a fan and no more beneficial competitively to the USMNT or Mexico than SuperLiga was to MLS clubs years ago. It will be essentially be a money grab. I like my money grabs to carry intrinsic value.
