Two big tournaments kick off over the next 8 days. Tomorrow we get the start of the Copa America Centenario here in the U.S. and then a week later Euro 2016 starts in France. Surprisingly the Rapids have 3, but only 3, players involved in these tournaments when 5 months ago we thought we'd be lucky to have one (and sadly that one, Kevin Doyle, isn't involved). Here's a schedule of when the teams featuring the Rapids will be playing and the TV coverage (all times MDT).
Copa America Centenario:
USA - Jermaine Jones, Tim Howard
Fri 6/3 - USA vs. Colombia - Santa Clara, CA - 7:30pm - Fox Sports 1
Tue 6/7 - USA vs. Costa Rica - Chicago, IL - 6pm - Fox Sports 1
Sat 6/11 - USA vs. Paraguay - Philadelphia, PA - 5pm - Fox Sports 1
If the U.S. wins the group (not likely):
Quarterfinal Thu 6/16 - Seattle, WA - 6:30pm - Fox Sports 1
Semifinal Tue 6/21 - Houston, TX - 7pm - Fox Sports 1
If the U.S. finishes 2nd in the group (could happen):
Quarterfinal Fri 6/17 - East Rutherford, NJ - 5pm - Fox Sports 1
Semifinal Wed 6/22 - Chicago, IL - 6pm - Fox Sports 1
3rd Place Game Sat 6/25 - Glendale, AZ - 6pm - FX

Wed 6/15 - Albania vs. France - Marseilles, France - 1pm - ESPN

If Albania make the knockout rounds (possible but not likely) the Round of 16 matchup could be one of 3 on either June 25th or June 26th. A quarterfinal matchup would be somewhere between June 30th and July 2nd, a semifinal would be July 6th or 7th, and the final is July 10th.
Ireland - Kevin Doyle could be added next week if a player is injured
Mon 6/13 - Ireland vs. Sweden - Saint-Denis, France - 10am - ESPN
Sat 6/18 - Ireland vs. Belgium - Bordeaux, France - 7am - ESPN
Wed 6/22 - Ireland vs. Italy - Lille, France - 1pm- ESPN
If Ireland make the knockout rounds (not likely given their presence in the Group of Death) the Round of 16 matchup could be one of 3 between June 25th and 27th. A quarterfinal matchup would be somewhere between June 30th and July 2nd, a semifinal would be July 6th or 7th, and the final is July 10th.
