    Fans start to pour into Levi's Stadium in San Jose on Sat. June 19, 2016.

    Thousands of soccer fans from around the world are flooding Levi’s Stadium tonight to watch Mexico and Chile go head to head for a chance to advance to the semifinals of the Copa America Centenario. This will mark the final of the four games in the tournament.

    Bay Area commuters should expect heavy traffic around the stadium, with reports predicting delays to be even slower than those at the Super Bowl. Freeways 880 and 101 surrounding the area are expected to pack in the largest traffic jams.

    Highway 237 as well as Lawrence Expressway, Great America Expressway and San Tomas Expressway should also be avoided, according to a press release. 

    Tasman Drive has been closed since this morning and will continue to be off limits until 9 p.m., the San Jose Mercury News reported.
