Be a part of history when the Copa America football tournament comes to Orlando this week. This is the tourney's 100th anniversary, making it the oldest international continental football tournament in history. This year in particular is special, as it'll be hosted outside of South America for the first time ever. Sixteen teams from two different conferences in the Americas are pitted against one another in 10 stadiums across the United States, and the City Beautiful is fortunate enough to host two of the opening group games this week at Camping World Stadium. Saturday's game has Costa Rica facing off against Paraguay, and Monday's match has Panama playing Bolivia. Tickets are a little pricier than your average Orlando City game, but hey, bragging about the seeing the first Copa America games in the states to your grandchildren will be priceless. (PS - There's a third game – Brazil vs. Haiti – at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, June 8, but it didn't fit into our issue coverage dates.)

5 p.m. Saturday, June 4, 7 p.m. Monday, June 6 | Camping World Stadium, 1 Citrus Bowl Place | ca2016.com | $50-$375
