To celebrate 100 years since the competition’s inception, Copa America Centenario has been arranged out of sync with the usual four-year cycle. Chile won the Copa for the first time ever last summer on home soil and are one of 16 teams set to take part in the United States, the only time in its existence the competition has been staged outside of South America.

The Copa America Centenario Executive Committee announced the procedures for the 2016 Copa America Centenario Official Draw, set to take place on Sunday, February 21 at 7:30 p.m. ET, at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City. The draw, which will determine the groups and full schedule for tournament, will be televised live on Univision in the United States and will feature former stars of the world’s game from around the hemisphere.

As for the date and time, it will be on 21 February at 19:30 ET which converts to:

  • 04:30 am, on the morning of 22 February, 2016, in Dubai, United Arab Emirates
  • 00:30 am GMT, on the morning of 22 February, 2016

The “great” beIN Sports did not make it easy on viewers to find out if they can watch it live on any of their channels in MENA region. Yet, my guess is that they will broadcast it on their news channel.
