Brazil And Copa America Coming To America In 2016

usa-v-brazilThe U.S. Soccer Federation has announced that next year’s Centennial Copa America will take place in the U.S.A.

The FIFA scandal had threatened to derail the showcase event,but the announcement that CONCACAF and the South American Confederation of Football (CONMEBOL) had ended relationships with Datisa, the marketing company that held Copa America rights, freed up the USSF to move ahead with the tournament next summer.

The United States, Mexico, Costa Rica and Jamaica already qualified for the tournament. The U.S. and Mexico automatically qualified as the top teams from the region, while Costa Rica did so as the Copa Centroamericana winners and Jamaica book their spot by winning the Caribbean Cup.

Copa America Centenario, will bee a celebration of the 100th anniversary of the first South American championship tournament, and will involve all 10 teams from CONMEBOL plus the six from CONCACAF.

That means for the first time on American soil you will get a chance to see Neymar, Oscar, David Luiz and the rest of the Samba Boys play competitive games. Literally a once in a generation experience.

The Copa America is arguably the second best competition in world football behind only the World Cup and the opportunity for US fans to see so many of the world’s stars play in competitive matches is sure to attract sell-out crowds across the USA.

The 16-nation tournament, to be played from June 3-26, 2016, will feature all 10 national teams from South America and six from CONCACAF, including the United States, Mexico, Costa Rica and Jamaica.

The areas that expressed interest to host were Atlanta; Baltimore; Boston; Chicago; Cleveland; Dallas; Denver; Detroit; Houston; Indianapolis; Jacksonville, Florida; Kansas City, Missouri; Los Angeles; Nashville, Tennessee; New York/New Jersey; Orlando, Florida; Philadelphia; Phoenix; St. Louis; San Diego; San Francisco; Seattle; Tampa, Florida; and Washington, D.C.
