Copa America 1991

The Copa America 1991 football tournament was hosted by Chile, from July 8 to July 21, 1991. It was organized by CONMEBOL and all ten member nations participated.

This was the last time that the tournament consisted of only CONMEBOL member nations. In subsequent tournaments, two nations from outside CONMEBOL have been invited to bring the total number of participants to twelve.

Argentina won the Copa America for the 13th time but only the first since 1959.
