CONCACAF and CONMEBOL unveiled on Tuesday the logo for the 2016 Copa Centenario, set to take place in the United States.
Set against a black backdrop, the logo features a sleek design of the Copa America trophy in the middle with red, blue, and green curves forming the shape of a soccer ball. The years 1916 and 2016 signify the CONMEBOL’s upcoming centennial and the streaks of color circling the trophy represent the two confederations, blue for CONCACAF and green for CONMEBOL.
The logo was designed by British-based company The Works, Ltd. and features a red, white, and blue stripe next to the word “USA” at the bottom of the logo, signifying the hosting country for the tournament.
CONCACAF also used the logo release to announce that Univision will be the official Spanish-language television rights holder for the tournament.
