With the Concacaf showpiece taking place this summer, Goal rounds up all the details that you need to know ahead of the tournament

The 2019 Concacaf Gold Cup will be the 15th edition of the tournament, the biennial international men's football championship of the North, Central American, and Caribbean region overseen by Concacaf.

This summer's edition will be held in the United States, with Costa Rica and a to-be-confirmed Caribbean country also hosting two games in the first round of matches in Groups B and C.

It will begin on June 15 with the group stages and conclude on July 7, with games played across 17 different venues in 16 host cities.

The winner of the Concacaf Gold Cup will play against the United States, who are defending champions of the 2017 edition, in the 2019 Concacaf Cup – a one-match play-off fixture to decide the qualifying country to participate in the 2021 Confederations Cup. In the event that the USMNT win the 2019 Gold Cup, they will automatically qualify for the Confederations Cup as 2017 and 2019 champions.

Here is everything you need to know ahead of this summer's tournament.


Where is the 2019 Concacaf Gold Cup final?

The final of the 2019 Concacaf Gold Cup will be held at Soldier Field in Chicago, which is home to the NFL's Chicago Bears. It has a capacity of 61,500 and the final will be held on July 7, 2019.

It has previously served as the home venue for major sports teams, including the Chicago Cardinals, University of Notre Dame football, MLS side Chicago Fire, as well as games from the 1994 World Cup, the 1999 Women's World Cup, and several Concacaf Gold Cup games.
