Chile to host 2015 Copa America tournament
SANTIAGO, Chile (AP) -- Chile will host the 2015 Copa America after Brazil backed out.
Chilean federation president Sergio Jadue confirmed the move on Saturday after Brazilian officials decided the calendar was too crowded with three major events in Brazil in the next several years: The Confederations Cup in 2013, the World Cup in 2014 and the Olympics in 2016.
Chile last was host to the South American championship in 1991.
Uruguay won the 2011 Copa in Argentina.
