This Sunday, Haiti will take on fourth-ranked Colombia in an exhibition prior to the two nations entering the Copa America Centenario.
New York Red Bulls midfielder Derrick Etienne is in camp for Haiti and the 19 year-old may make his senior debut for the nation which his father played for. Les Grenadiers' opponent is world powerhouse Colombia. The contrast between the two nation's footballing prowess is stark: Haiti is ranked 71st compared to Colombia's number four FIFA ranking. However, this is the kind of competition which Haiti will come up against in Copa America and a dress rehearsal against an elite South American opponent is sensible.
Haiti is in a Copa America group with Peru, Brazil and Ecuador while Colombia is grouped with the U.S., Costa Rica, and Paraguay. Colombia and the USMNT will open up the Copa America on June 3rd at 9:30 PM.
Former Red Bull Jozy Altidore has made sure all of Haiti will be able to see the Copa America Centenario this summer. Despite his injury keeping him out of the competition for the U.S., Altidore wanted to make sure the people of his parent's home nation could see their national team in the Copa America. Altidore and his foundation are joining up with St. Luke Foundation to, "to deliver television coverage of Haiti's matches, the USA's matches and the tournament semifinals and final to the island nation." This will include multiple viewing parties across Haiti that Altidore's foundation will fund while the St. Luke foundation provides the boots on the ground.
If you aren't in Haiti and able to take advantage of Altidore's gesture, this game is rather hard to find on television. Fubo.tv should have the game on stream as per usual, but other than that the game's listings are scarce. However, it is hard to imagine a game with Haiti, which has a large immigrant population in the U.S., and world soccer powers Colombia won't be on US television somewhere. Caracol TV in Colombia will be broadcasting the game. If US options pop up - Once A Metro will update as that information emerges.
