Gillette Stadium and Foxborough, Massachusetts have already been named one of the host sites for next summers historic Copa America Centenario in the United States.

Today, we learned which games will be played at the home of MLS' New England Revolution and the NFL's New England Patriots.

The third and deciding match of Brazil's Group B will take place at Gillette on June 12th. Brazil is no stranger to the venue, defeating Portugal 3-1 back in 2013 and routing the USA 4-1 this past September.

Gillette will also host one of the four quarter finals between the winner of Group D and the runner-up of Group C on June 18th. Also, Gillette will host one of the Group D matches between the 2nd and 4th numbered teams, which match is dependent on results from the tournament draw.. The USMNT is seeded and will play in Group A in Santa Clara, CA, Chicago and Philadelphia. Mexico and Argentina are the other two seeded teams highlighting Groups C and D respectfully.

Six CONCACAF teams will play in Copa America next summer with the US and Mexico joined by Costa Rica, Jamaica and winners of a January playoff between Panama-Cuba and Haiti-Trinidad and Tobago.
