The Copa Centenario Revolución de Mayo was an international football tournament, held in Argentina from May 29 to June 12, 1910,[1] and organised by the Argentine Football Association.[2] It was the first international tournament in South America where more than two football nations participated.[3] The "Copa Centenario" is considered a predecessor to the South American Championship, later renamed "Copa América".[4]

This contest was held in honor of the 100th anniversary of the May Revolution.[5] Previous to that, the only international competitions in South America had been contested by the national teams of Uruguay and Argentina only. Those competitions included the Copa Newton, the Copa Lipton and the Copa Premier Honor Argentino.

Because of having featured three of the subsequent four founding members of CONMEBOL, the Copa Centenario Revolución de Mayo was sometimes called "the first Copa América". However, CONMEBOL recognizes the 1916 South American Championship as the first edition of the competition.[6]

The tournament was contested in a round-robin format between the national teams of Argentina, Chile and Uruguay. All three games were played in Buenos Aires, the first in Club Colegiales Stadium [note 1] and the rest in Gimnasia y Esgrima Stadium.
