Tuesday January 19th, 2016

The draw for Copa America Centenario will be held Feb. 21 in New York City, CONCACAF announced on Tuesday. 

The 16-team field is set after Haiti and Panama won their qualifying playoff matchups, and the CONMEBOL and CONCACAF teams will learn their fate next month at the Hammerstein Ballroom, with the draw slated for 7:30 p.m. and televised on Univision.

The U.S., Mexico, Argentina and Brazil have already been announced as the top pot for the tournament, and the rest of the seeding will be based on December's FIFA world ranking. The tournament will take place from June 3-26, with the final also slated for the New York area, at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.

Other host sites are: CenturyLink Field in Seattle; Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California; the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California; University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona; NRG Stadium in Houston; the Citrus Bowl in Orlando; Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts; Soldier Field in Chicago; and Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia.
