CONCACAF Gold Cup kicks off
Published on July 8, 2017 Email To Friend    Print Version

The 14th edition of the CONCACAF Gold Cup kicked off Friday night in New Jersey, to be played across 13 US cities throughout July

NEW YORK, USA -- The Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF) was due to kick off the 14th edition of CONCACAF Gold Cup on Friday night in the New York-New Jersey metropolitan area in front of a capacity crowd.

This summer's marquee Confederation championship, which will feature top soccer players and national teams from across the region, and will crown a CONCACAF champion.

Jordan Morris (Seattle Sounders FC and USA), Bryan Ruiz (Sporting Clube de Portugal and Costa Rica), Erick Torres (Houston Dynamo and Mexico), and Alberth Elis (Houston Dynamo and Honduras) are among the notable inclusions to the 12 national team rosters.

The 12 nations will play in 13 US cities in a span of 20 days, culminating in the final game on July 26 at Levi's Stadium in the Bay Area, where ticket sales have already surpassed 50,000.

The continental championship will begin Friday, July 7, in Harrison, NJ, in front of what is expected to be a capacity crowd. The opening double header features a Group A match-up of perennial Central American rivals, Honduras and Costa Rica as well as the 2000 champion Canada facing newcomer French Guiana.

Group B will kick off on Saturday in Nashville, with a rematch of the 2015 Gold Cup third-place match between USA and Panama, followed by Martinique and Nicaragua.

Defending champions Mexico will begin their title defence on Sunday in San Diego, versus El Salvador as the second match of a doubleheader. Curacao and Jamaica will begin play in Group C in the first match of that day.
