"CONCACAF is looking forward to a successful tournament, working in close partnership with both stadium and local authorities, while expanding the reach of our competition to a larger number of fans in more locations throughout the United States".

The region's premier National Team tournament will again expand its footprint by visiting eight new world-class venues in this year's edition: Georgia Dome in Atlanta, GA; M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore, MD; Sports Authority Field at Mile High in Denver, CO; Rentschler Field in East Hartford, CT; BBVA Compass Stadium in Houston, TX; Sun Life Stadium in Miami Gardens, FL; JELD-WEN Field in Portland, OR and Rio Tinto Stadium in Salt Lake City, UT. Six new Gold Cup cities are featured in this group of newcomers, including Atlanta, Baltimore, Denver, Hartford, Portland and Salt Lake City. Houston and Miami return to host the tournament, for the 5th and 9th time consecutive time, respectively.

The event will also return to five venues from its previous editions including Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, TX (2009, 2011); Soldier Field in Chicago, IL (2007, 2009, 2011); Rose Bowl in Pasadena, CA (1991, 2002, 2011); Red Bull Arena in Harrison, NJ (2011) and CenturyLink Field in Seattle, WA (2005, 2009). Years in parenthesis denote Gold Cups at each venue.

To date, eleven of the twelve participating national teams have qualified for this year's tournament. In alphabetical order: Belize, Canada, Costa Rica, Cuba, El Salvador, Haiti, Honduras, Martinique, Mexico, Trinidad & Tobago and the United States. The final spot will be decided on Friday in the fifth-place match of the 2013 UNCAF Copa Centroamericana between Guatemala and Panama, which is being held in Costa Rica.

"We look forward to an exciting 2013 Gold Cup beginning on July 7 here at the historic Rose Bowl. All communities will be united through regional rivalries that generate national pride filled with emotion and passion", CONCACAF president Jeffrey Webb said in a statement.

Mexico claimed the 2011 title with an emphatic 4-2 win over the United States in front of a crowd of 93,000 fans, winning the tournament for the second time in a row after US victories in three of the four prior editions.

Though the field of 12 teams for the 2013 Gold Cup has now been set, Mexico's opponents and the other pair of participants in the doubleheader have yet to be announced. In addition to the Rose Bowl, 12 other venues across the United States will share hosting duties.

The complete schedule and group stage draw will be released in mid-March.

That's a ridiculous amount of sites for a 12 team tournament.

Agreed. I'd rather they regionalize it and then move it around. One year along the west coast, another time in the northeast, etc. This idea of flying 1,000+ miles for some games is asinine when it's so unnecessary.

It's always the same, each team has to do a quite long tour around the country before the found them selfs in quarterfinals. Then after is even worst!!! I remember once Mexico had to play in NYC or Miami the semifinal on Wednesday, move to the teams hotel somewhere in Texas and finally play the final in Los Angeles.

Once again, we can prove that the real deal here is the cash they can get, because if it was the development of football Concacaf would be a better and competitive confederation.

Agred. They should rotate it between different regions.

Nice to see the Miami game being moved from FIU to Dolphins Stadium.


Question; will the same Mexican side play the Gold Cup as the team playing the Confederations Cup in Brazil in june?

No, the senior Mexican side will play the three World Cup qualifiers and Confederations Cup in June. A developmental side will be sent to the Gold Cup in July. That's also what the US did last time around.

It'll be cool when CONCACAF scraps these joke Gold Cups and hosts the tournament once every four years. Until then, it'll continue to be their cash cow, competitiveness and quality be damned.

I don't see how the Gold Cup or African Cup of Nations being hosted every two years hurts anyone. Speaking from the standpoint of the US, it's a great opportunity to give younger players a chance to experience participation in competitive matches with the national team. Anyone who is interested in the U20 World Cup or the Olympic tournaments should also be interested in the Gold Cup. All of them give fans a chance to see exciting new prospects. Stuart Holden, Josh Gatt, Bobby Wood, Joe Gyau, Mix Diskerud, and Sebastian Lletget should all be in the mix to make the Gold Cup roster this year.

me parece que con la cantidad de centroamericanos caribe;os y mexicanos que hay en usa. una copa de la concacaf resulta mas rentable que una en sudamerilca

toda vez que por los altos indices de violencia, la gran extension del continente y la poca conectividad y pobre logistica entre los paises toda vez que a diferencia de europa o usa son estados que la estructura de transporte ya se ferrea aerea o vial contempla estructuras en buen estado que crea e incentiva mucha competencia con mejores ofertas por la gran competitividad en un mercado de oferta y demanda que da buenos precios y seguridad ante todo a los pasajeros

no es lo mismo ver un juego en una ciudad trankila como seatle que un juego en colombia o venezuela

no es lo mismo ver un juego en los angeles de honduras vs Mexico donde hay millones de los dos en esa ciudad

creo que representa la copa mas economicamente para la concacaf que lo que hace la comebol

en sus paises

creo que deberia dejar sus nacionalismos a un lado y por un tema de economia hacer partidos en usa mediante una fusion de las dos copas,

xq se harian juegos dependiendo de los lugares de las colonias

ecuatorianos peruanos y colombianos

en neuva york

y llenan el estadio

y lo que darian por ver jugar a su seleccion

y esos emigrantes son clientes mas fiables por economias que los propios nacionales de sus paises de origen

venezuela y colombia

en miami definitivamente

centro americanos y mexicanos en el west side ellos saben que esa es su area

brasil creo que tambien en nueva york tiene una gran colonia

asi las cosas quizas argentina y uruguay

pero que karajo esto es algo de mercados y economia y las federaciones nesecitan plata guita o como lo quieran llamar pero es un asko ver partidos de la copa america en bolivia, colombia, ecuador, con estadios feos la calidad de la tv es standard...

mmmmm no se

de ves en cuando hasta sus grandes estrellas deciden quedarse enn su club pues no es llamativo a perdido su sitial

creo que deberian hacer algo diferente mientras no se

se desarrollen como region
