The 2004 Copa América was the 41st edition of the Copa América, the South-American championship for international association football teams. The competition was organized by CONMEBOL, South America's football governing body, and was held in Peru, who hosted the tournament for the sixth time, from 6 to 25 July.
The tournament was won by Brazil in a shootout over Argentina. This made Brazil hold the World Cup and Copa América titles simultaneously for the second time in history, as happened after 1997 Copa América.
There is no qualifying tournament for the final tournament. CONMEBOL's 10 South American countries participated, along with two more invited countries, making a total of twelve teams competing in the tournament. The two invited countries for this edition of the Copa América were Mexico and Costa Rica.

- "Más Allá de los Sueños" by Peruvian singer-songwriter Gian Marco was the official theme song for the tournament. The song was well received and became popular in Latin America but mostly in Perú. Despite it being the official tournament theme song, Gian Marco was unable to perform it during the closing ceremony due to him being on tour at that time.
- "La Copa Será Tuya Al Final" by Betzaida was used by Univision as their theme song.
