The soccer tournament has been expanded to include a record 16 Concacaf member associations and will also be played in Central America and the Caribbean for the first time, with those markets and venues to be announced in coming months.
“The Gold Cup is anticipated every two years by fans across the region, as a true celebration of the vibrant culture and world-class football that make up our wonderful and diverse One Concacaf region,” said Concacaf President Victor Montagliani. “The venues selected thus far offer a mix of soccer history as well as a taste of the future of the sport in the U.S., and we are excited to work with the local host committees to bring the game to fans all over the U.S. With the upcoming selection of additional venues in the Caribbean and Central America, the Gold Cup becomes a regional event on even more levels, as Concacaf continues to focus on making football accessible to more teams, players and fans.”
