Ticket Down is a reputable source of authentic tickets for Uruguay vs. Venezuela in conjunction with the 2016 Copa America Centenario. Uruguay and Venezuela are in “Group C” which also includes the teams from Mexico and Jamaica.
Diehard soccer fans in North America understand that 2016 is an exciting year for CONMEBOL. As the oldest football confederation in the world, it gets to mark its 100th year this summer. It is not only the oldest group, but it also created the oldest tournament too, the Copa America. It also turns 100 this year, and the group has created a one-time event that marks this achievement with a first-ever tournament.
The Copa America Centenario Tournament is running from June 3rd to June 26th, and rather than wait for the standard four-year cycle, this tournament uses an entirely different time and unusual set of players. Partnered with CONCACAF, this Copa America Centenario really does bring most of the Americas into the contest. Rather than playing the matches in South America, this new tournament is going to occur in ten different venues in the United States. It will include 16, rather than 12 teams, and will be seen in all parts of the world.
The tournament will feature a Group Stage using four different groups (A-D) that will compete and move on to the Quarterfinals, Semifinals, and Final match. In Group C is Mexico, Uruguay, Jamaica and Venezuela. Match #13 on June 9th, sees the Venezuelan team pairing off against Uruguay at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, PA.
Scoring is simple – the winner of each match receives three points, while a draw results in each team gaining a single point. Played in a round robin format, the Group Stage sends their first and second place winners into the Quarterfinals beginning June 16th in Seattle, WA.
The Venezuelan national football team, also called Los Llaneros by fans, is headed up by captain Tomas Rincon. The team reached the semifinals in the Copa of 2011. The Uruguayan national football team has won the Copa America and the World Cup, and is led by captain Diego Dodin.
Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, PA is home to the NFL’s Philadelphia Eagles, and also a popular place for Major League Soccer contests. The very first event hosted in the venue was in 2003 with a soccer club match between Manchester United and Barcelona, and it recently hosted the final match of the 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup. It seats almost 70,000.
