CONCACAF and CONMEBOL confirmed the news on Thursday: The Copa America Centenario is coming to Los Angeles.

Well, Pasadena, to be exact. The Rose Bowl was named one of 10 venues around the United States for the tournament, to be held next June and featuring all 10 South American countries, plus six CONCACAF countries, including the U.S. and Mexico.

The site will host multiple games during the tournament, though exactly how many and which rounds is not yet publicly known. Initial reports claimed the Rose Bowl would host the final, then later reports said it would be MetLife Stadium in New Jersey, but no official word yet on that front.

Here's the full list of venues. Theoretically, Southern Californians could make a road trip to Santa Clara or Glendale, Ariz. to catch more games.

Gillette Stadium - Foxborough, Mass.

Soldier Stadium - Chicago

NRG Stadium - Houston

Rose Bowl - Pasadena

MetLife Stadium - East Rutherford, NJ

Citrus Bowl Stadium - Orlando

Lincoln Financial Field - Philadelphia

University of Phoenix Stadium - Glendale, Ariz.

Levi's Stadium - Santa Clara, Calif.

CenturyLink Stadium - Seattle

We'll have updates on which games will be played locally and more coverage as the tournament approaches.
