The 2021 Concacaf Gold Cup, the region’s flagship men’s national soccer team competition, will take place next month!  This year’s format will be a little different including a new Preliminary Round (July 2-6) prior to the Group Stage (July 10-20) and an updated Knockout Stage (July 24 – Aug 1).

This summer’s Gold Cup will be the 16th edition of the competition and a major element of Concacaf’s 60th-anniversary celebration and will be played in 11 stadiums across eight major US markets. Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas will play host to the competition’s final match on Sunday, August 1.

With an exciting new format and the prospect of welcoming passionate fans to the stadiums for these compelling matchups, I can’t wait for the football to begin on July 2nd and to crown a champion in Las Vegas on August 1st,” added Montagliani.
