    It varies. It was held every 2 years from 1987 to 2001 and then every 3 years in 2004 and 2007. Now the next one is 4 years from now in 2011.

    Wiki says "It was normally held every two years (but the intervals sometimes changed) until 2007, when CONMEBOL decided that the tournament would henceforth be held every four years, although provision was made for extraordinary stagings of the tournament if the ten national football federations wish it."

    Conmebol.com says "It was resolved that the Copa America will be disputed every four years from now on, so the following tournament after Venezuela will be in 2011. Nevertheless, if conditions were to exist so that an extraordinary Copa America can be played, the possibility will be evaluated, provided it fills the expectations and safeguards the interest of the ten associations."
