CONCACAF is starting its buildup towards Copa América Centenario. Copa América will hold it’s 100th final at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey, and the tournament will be played in nine other stadiums across the United States.

CONCACAF also considered using the Rose Bowl, which hosted the 1994 World Cup final. MetLife has had a recent track record for international success, having sold out two CONCACAF Gold Cup knockout matches in 2015

The tournament will start on June 3rd, and end June 26th at MetLife. Here are the other venues for the Centenario:

New York/New Jersey – MetLife Stadium

Orlando – Orlando Citrus Bowl Stadium

Seattle – CenturyLink Field

San Francisco – Levi’s Stadium

Boston – Gilette Stadium

Chicago – Soldier Field

Houston – NRG Stadium

Los Angeles – Rose Bowl

Philadelphia – Lincoln Financial Field

As is the case with most international tournaments, each venue will host three matches per day in the group stage. To find out how you can get tickets, click here.

For the 100th edition of this tournament, Copa América will be held outside South America for the first time ever.

USMNT and Mexico are automatic qualifiers, and they are joined by CONCACAF mates Costa Rica and Jamaica. The South American field includes Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay, and Venezuela.

The tournament field is two teams short of completion. January playoff matches will determine the final teams. Panama will face Cuba, and Trinidad-Tobago will meet Haiti on January 8th in Panama.

Copa América consists of a mix teams from CONCACAF and South America, with Chile as the current defending champion. A South American team has won the tournament in every iteration since the tournament began 100 years ago in 1916. The closest competitor has been Mexico, who finished as runners-up in 1993 and 2001.
