Copa América Centenario Draw and Schedule

COPA_America_Centenario_2016_emblem_fc_cmykThe four seeded teams were determined back in December, when the U.S., Brazil, Mexico, and Argentina were announced as the heads of Groups A, B, C, and D, respectively. Now the remaining 12 teams have been drawn into the groups and the dates and locations of the matches have been determined.

Group A: USA, Colombia, Costa Rica, Paraguay.
Group B: Brazil, Ecuador, Haiti, Peru.
Group C: Mexico, Uruguay, Jamaica, Venezuela.
Group D: Argentina, Chile, Panama, Bolivia.

Mexico will open play on June 5th against Uruguay in Arizona before traveling to the Rose Bowl to face Jamaica in a rematch of the 2015 Gold Cup final on June 9th. El Tri will finish group play against Venezuela on June 13th in Texas.

Should they reach the knockout rounds, they would face either the winner or runner-up from Group D, in a game that would be held either in California (if they win the group) or in Massachusetts (if they finish second).
