The 1999 Copa América was a football tournament held in Paraguay, from June 29 to July 18. It was organized by CONMEBOL, South America's football governing body.

Due to the low number of entrants, there is no qualifying for the final tournament. Japan became the first non-American team to participate. Uruguay sent a youth team.

Competing nations[edit]

As with previous tournaments, all ten members of CONMEBOL participated in the competition. In order to bring the number of competing teams to twelve, CONMEBOL invited Mexico (accepting their fourth invitation) from the CONCACAF and Japan from the AFC.

Venues[edit]

A total of four host cities hosted the tournament. The opening and final game were hosted by Estadio Defensores del Chaco.

Venue selection[edit]

Paraguay was chosen to be the venue by defeating Colombia by seven votes to three.

Group stage[edit]

The teams were divided into three groups of four teams each. The formation of the groups was made by CONMEBOL, in a public drawing of lots.

Each team plays one match against each of the other teams within the same group. Three (3) points are awarded for a win, one (1) point for a draw and zero (0) points for a defeat.

First and second placed teams, in each group, advance to the quarter-finals. The best third placed team and the second best third placed team, also advance to the quarter-finals.

  • Tie-breaker
    • If teams finish leveled on points, the following tie-breakers are used:
    1. greater goal difference in all group games;
    2. greater number of goals scored in all group games;
    3. winner of the head-to-head match between the teams in question;
    4. drawing of lots.
Key to colours in group tables
Group winners, runners-up, and best two third-placed teams advance to the quarter-finals
