It's an exciting development. Presumably it will largely professionalize the national teams in Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Paraguay and Uruguay as well as giving an opportunity to the next tier of players in Argentina. A potential pitfall could be linking up with pro soccer clubs. Are fans of Santos, Palmieras and Sao Paulo going to support a team bearing the name of Corinthians? Likewise will Danubio and Nacional fans cheer on Penarol?
