The 2001 Copa América was held in Colombia, from July 11 to 29. It was organised by CONMEBOL, South America's football governing body.

There is no qualifying for the final tournament. CONMEBOL's ten South American countries participate, along with two more invited countries, making a total of twelve teams competing in the tournament. Originally, Mexico and CONCACAF Champions Canada were invited.

Prior to the tournament, three meetings were held by CONMEBOL authorities who were concerned about potential security issues in Colombia. On July 1 they announced the cancellation of the tournament.[2][3] Venezuela offered to host the competition, but on July 6 CONMEBOL decided to reinstate the plans for Colombia, and the tournament was held on schedule.

When the tournament was originally cancelled, Canada disbanded its training camp and Canadian players returned to their club teams. The Canadian Soccer Association announced they would not be able to participate in the reinstated tournament. With only a few days notice, Costa Rica (CONCACAF) accepted an invite to take Canada's spot in the tournament. The Costa Ricans advanced to the knockout stage, losing in the quarterfinals.

Complaining about the sudden reversal, and claiming that Argentine players had received death threats from terrorist groups, the Argentine Football Association decided to withdraw from the competition on July 10, in spite of Colombian authorities proposing to implement additional protection measures.[3] With the tournament starting the next day, Honduras (CONCACAF) were invited, arriving with barely enough players on July 13 in an airplane provided by the Colombian Air Force, after the tournament started and just a few hours before its first game. The Hondurans performed well through the tournament, finishing in third place.

Despite the pre-tournament concerns, there were no incidents of violence nor acts of assault towards any of the participating nations.

First round

Key to colours in group tables
Group winners, runners-up, and best two third-placed teams advance to the quarter-finals

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:
  • greater goal difference in all group games;
  • greater number of goals scored in all group games;
  • winner of the head-to-head match between the teams in question;
  • drawing of lots.

Theme song

  • "Irresistible" by American singer Jessica Simpson was the official theme song for the tournament. Simpson performed the song during halftime of the final match between Colombia and Mexico. CONMEBOL chose the song to introduce the tournament to a younger audience. The song was a hit single in South America at the time.
  • "Bulería by Spanish Singer David Bisbal for Univision coverage for Copa América 2001
