Colombia and Haiti are preparing to dominate the soccer fields at the 2016 Copa America Centenario, but first, let them play a friendly match. 

Both national teams will play a friendly game of soccer in Miami just days before they head to the centenary tournament running from June 3rd to the 26th. The news that promises to drive soccer aficionados crazy, was revealed Monday by CMN Sports, a division of Cárdenas Marketing Network, Inc., one of the leading experiential event-marketing agencies and the largest producer of Latin music events in the U.S. This game marks the fifth time Colombia and Haiti have faced-off in a game, the last time being in February 2009 where Colombia defeated Haiti 2-0.

“We know Miami has a large community of both Colombian and Haitian soccer fans and are pleased to bring this exciting match to them,” said founder and CEO of CMN, Henry Cárdenas, in a press statement. 

This is the only time Colombia will be playing in Miami this year, promising to feature some of the federation’s top players such as James Rodriguez, Juan Cuadrado, Carlos Bacca and David Ospina. Haiti’s team will come full force with key players such as Mechack Jerome, Johny Placide, Jeff Louis, Donald Guerrier and Kervens Fils Belfort.

In their quest for the 2018 World Cup qualification, Colombia beat Bolivia in a thrilling game earlier this month; meanwhile, Haiti tied Panama in their match on Friday, positioning them to still be in the running for a spot in the final six (hexagonal) in the CONCACAF region.

The historic 2016 Copa American Centenario, hosted in the U.S., is an international men’s soccer tournament in celebration of the centenary of CONMEBOL and the Copa America as well. It's also the first Copa America hosted outside of South America. The winner of the tournament, which is ceremonial, will not receive an invitation to the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup, as Chile's national team has already qualified by winning the 2015 Copa América.

The Colombia vs. Haiti friendly match will take place Sunday, May 29 at the Marlin's Park in Miami, Fla. Tickets can be purchased via or
