Ticket Down is a reputable source of authentic tickets for Colombia vs. Costa Rica at the home of the Houston Texans, NRG Stadium. This match is associated with the 2016 Copa America Centenario. “Group A” also includes the USA Men’s Team and Paraguay.
The year 2016 is a major year for international soccer. It marks the 100th anniversary of the oldest football confederation and tournament in the world. In1916, the CONMEBOL began, and founded the Copa America tournament. To celebrate this enormous achievement, the group has created a special Copa America Centenario Tournament.
Rather than wait for the standard four-year cycle, the organization has partnered with the CONCACAF football confederation to create a once-in-a-lifetime, all Americas, tournament. The Copa America Centenario for 2016 will occur from June 3rd through June 26th, and the 32 matches will occur in ten different venues throughout the United States. And instead of 12 teams, 16 teams from all parts of the Americas will compete. This is the first time in its 100-year history that the Copa America will be played outside of South America, and a first for American soil! NRG Stadium is home to the National Football League’s Houston Texans and this venue also hosted the 2004 Super Bowl. With a seating capacity of roughly 72,000, and a history of hosting USA National Soccer team events, it is a natural choice for the Copa America Centenario. Every year, NRG Stadium (formerly Reliant Stadium) hosts the Houston Rodeo with nightly concerts during the month of March. This summer Beyonce will be headlining here on Saturday, May 7th.
The Colombian team, also called “Los Cafeteros” by its many fans, is led by world-famous captain James Rodriguez. The Costa Rican national football team is the current Central American champion team, and will be led by captain Bryan Ruiz. This team was the “darling” of the 2014 World Cup winning over countless new fans worldwide with their stellar performance.
The tournament uses a round robin Group Stage, and Match 18, with Colombia vs. Costa Rica at NRG Stadium in Houston, TX is a Group A game. The teams in the group also include Paraguay and the United States as well. The winner of each match gets three points, and the first and second place teams in the round then advance to the Quarterfinals that begin in Seattle, WA on June 16th. The final match of this tournament will be on June 26th at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ.
