Buenos Aires: The Copa America, the South American championship which Argentina is currently hosting, could in future be extended to include Central American and Caribbean States, the head of the South American grouping, CONMEBOL, said on Saturday.
CONMEBOL president Nicolas Leoz said: "The doors are open. CONMEBOL has always had the doors open to all the CONCACAF (North, Central American and Carribean) countries. It is an interesting idea" to bring the two groupings together, said Leoz.
There already exists a certain amount of cross-pollination between the two groupings given that Mexico have regularly been invited to the Copa while the United States have also enjoyed occasional guest status.
