Kickoff times announced for Copa America Centenario games


CONCACAF has announced the kickoff times for all of the Copa America Centenario games that will be played on US soil this summer.

The good news for soccer fans is that none of the games clash with the Euro 2016 competition, so fans will be able to watch the best teams in Europe play on TV in the morning and afternoons, and then have a chance to watch soccer in-person in the evenings to see the stars from North and South America.

The tournament will include Brazil, Argentina, USA, Mexico, Colombia and the following other countries: Chile, Ecuador, Uruguay, Bolivia, Paraguay, Peru, Venezuela, Costa Rica, Jamaica, Haiti and Panama.

That means we have the prospect of seeing many of the best soccer players in the world on US soil including Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez, Neymar, Sergio Aguero, James Rodriguez and more.

    really the time of the games being aired is so late, most people cant stay up that late people have to work !

    Who scheduled the start times for Copa, and why? I can’t figure out why so many games start so late. If you’re in Eastern or Central time zones and work in the morning, what are the odds you’ll stay up for a 9 or 10 pm kickoff game? Better yet, who’s gonna let their kids stay up?

    I live in Chicago & was prepared to pay up for semifinal tickets… until I saw the 9pm local-time kickoff on a weeknight. Factoring in traffic, that gets me home around midnight on a work night, 5 hrs before I wake up… if the game doesn’t go extra time or PKs. No chance I’m doing that now… and no one I know would take their kid to that game.

    It’s not as if this helps viewership in South America – Brazil & Argentina are 2 & 1 hour ahead of US ET – and it kills potential for younger viewers to get into the competition. Who wins with this setup?

    Wow. So many late east coast games I’ll miss half the tournament.
