The National Team of Uruguay is the biggest winner of the Copa America: with 15 titles. The “Celeste” was the first winner of the tournament, in 1916, and her last achievement of the title was accomplished in 2011, in the tournament that was played in Argentina, defeating Paraguay 3-0.

Uruguay has only stopped participating in one of the 45 editions of the Copa América, when in 1925 it decided not to attend the event in Argentina, due to internal problems within its Association.
