What exactly is the CONCACAF Gold Cup?

This is how it goes down. There are 12 teams competing in three groups and playing at different locations in the United States and Canada, including: Houston, TX; Glendale, AZ; Toronto, ON; East Rutherford, NJ; Atlanta, GA; Philadelphia, PA and more. The winner of this year’s Gold Cup will be the 2015 regional champion in North America, Central America and the Caribbean. If the United States wins a second consecutive Gold Cup, it’ll represent CONCACAF in the 2017 Confederations Cup (a precursor to the 2018 World Cup in Russia). If the US loses, however, there will be a one-game playoff between this year’s winner and the United States to determine who advances. So far, the US, Mexico & Trinidad and Tobago have won their first group stage games. The top two teams in each of the groups below will move on to the Quarterfinals, starting July 18th in Baltimore, MD.

Group A Group B Group C
United States Canada Mexico
Panama El Salvador Cuba
Haiti Jamaica Trinidad and Tobago
Honduras Costa Rica Guatemala

Here’s a quick look at how the US (2013 champions) and this year’s competition stack up based on FIFA ranking and past Gold Cup performance. Want to see your favorite team in action? Check out the full 2015 Gold Cup schedule below, including where to find tickets and/or watch on TV.
