MEXICO CITY, May 31 (Xinhua) -- The Copa America is the oldest continental team tournament in the history of soccer with its first edition being played in 1916.

The AFC Asian Cup came about in 1956; the African Cup of Nations (CAN) in 1957; the UEFA European Championship in 1960; Concacaf Gold Cup (North America, Central America and the Caribbean) in 1961 and the OFC Nations Cup (Oceania) in 1973.

The South American competition has an even older predecessor: the Copa Centenario Revolucion de Mayo was the first international soccer tournament in South America.

The championship was held in 1910 and was contested in a round-robin format which hosts Argentina won after defeating Uruguay (4-2) and Chile (5-1).

There are only two tournaments between national teams that are older than Copa America. The British Home Championship was played from 1883 to 1984 and England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland (which converted to Northern Ireland from 1949) competed. The other older tournament is the Olympic Games.

Olympic soccer at national level debuted at London 1908. The very first "modern" Olympics in Athens 1896 did not include soccer and at Paris 1900 and San Luis 1904 the discipline had been played between club teams.

In Copa America, Uruguay and Argentina have won the most titles over the years with 15 and 14, respectively.

In the first four editions of the tournament (called the South American Football Championship up until 1975) only Argentina, Uruguay, Chile and Brazil participated.

Paraguay started to join the tournament in the 1921 edition; Bolivia joined in 1926. Peru started to participate from 1927; Ecuador in 1939. Colombia joined in 1945 and Venezuela in 1967.

In Paraguay 1999 there was an unusual event when Japan participated. This was the first non-American team to play in Copa America.

The Asian side were also invited to Argentina 2011 but they turned it down due to the disaster caused by the devastating earthquake and tsunami which happened in Japan on March 11, 1999, killing 15,000 people and causing the disappearance of over 9,000 people.

Mexico is the invited team that has participated the most in the tournament (nine times) and consecutively since 1993.

In the 2015 edition, Jamaica was invited to compete and were eliminated in the group stages after losing all matches 0-1.

Miami is a leader in finance Wholesale Seattle Mariners Jerseys , commerce, culture, media, entertainment, arts Wholesale San Francisco Giants Jerseys , and international trade in

1. Beaches

Miami first of all has beautiful beaches where to sun bath, do some sport or simply relax and have fun.

One of the most famous beaches is South Beach: a typical place to experience what a beach in Miami
means. This beach is featured by miles of white sand and crystal clear water, just across Ocean Drive, the
famous promenade. Here Wholesale San Diego Padres Jerseys , you can take your lunch or dinner in one of the many restaurants serving various
cuisines and also wait for the lively nights to visit one of the clubs. In particular, The Art Deco District is
considered one of the most attractive in the world for its nightclubs, beaches, historical buildings, and
shopping. Various events take place here annually such as Sony Ericsson Open Wholesale Pittsburgh Pirates Jerseys , Art Basel, and Mercedes-
Benz Fashion Week Miami.

Another very interesting beach is Virginia Key Beach: it鈥檚 situated near the Miami Seaquarium, right off the
Rickenbacker Causeway. Due to its location, the access to this beach is very easy and therefore some areas
are often very crowded, but there are also several isolated places if you walk around a bit.

On the south of Key Biscayne Wholesale Philadelphia Phillies Jerseys , you find Bill Baggs State Park, where the famous Cape Florida lighthouse is
located. Here fun and history get mixed: you can sunbath or swim and later on take a guided visit of the
