The on-again, off-again reports of Copa America 2016 being staged in the United States have gathered pace today with a report in the Spanish media that says that CONMEBOL have confirmed that Copa America 2016 will be played in the US, just one year after Copa America 2015 is played in Chile.
Copa America 2016 is being organized to commemorate 100 years of the competition. The exact dates haven’t been finalized due to discussions with the media company that owns the TV rights, but Copa America 2016 will take place with 16 teams participating, which will include the United States and Mexico. These teams will be combined with select teams from Central America.
The stadiums earmarked to host Copa America 2016 games are Pasadena Rose Bowl (91,136 capacity), Stanford Stadium (80,242), Giants Stadium (50,424), Orlando’s Citrus Bowl (70,229), RFK Stadium (56,692) and Reliant Stadium (71,054).
For Copa America 2015, Japan and Mexico will participate in addition to the South America countries.
Copa America 2016 will give the US Men’s National Team a fantastic opportunity to play against the best teams in the hemisphere. It’s a tournament that the USMNT should be participating in more often to play against more challenging opposition, which will only help to improve the quality and experience of the US team.
