Some Now, Some Later

For some reason, Conmebol has released half of this summer's Copa America schedule. Why they've decided to not do it all at once is a mystery to me. Nonetheless, this is what we know until later today:
Group A: Venezuela and Bolivia; will play against each other in the opening match of the tournament on June 26th
Group B: Brazil and Mexico; will play one another on the first day, after Venezuela v. Bolivia
Group C: Argentina and the United States; will open group play against each other on June 28th
Other issues that have been decided:
  • The next Copa America will be hosted by either Argentina or Mexico.
  • The next Copa America will take place in 2011; from here on, the tournament will be played every four years.
  • The 2010 World Cup qualifiers will be played in a round robin format, home and away.
