“The host cities and venues we have selected all have strong track records of hosting elite football, and world class events,” said Victor Montagliani, who is the CONCACAF president and FIFA vice president. “I want to thank each and every one of them for their commitment to Concacaf, to our Gold Cup, and to our sport.
“This is a tremendous time for football in the region with Nations Leagues, men’s and women’s Gold Cups, and other exciting national team and club competitions taking place over the next three years as we head towards the FIFA World Cup 2026.”
The United States is defending champion and Qatar is included as an invited guest. Other nations are Canada, Costa Rica, Cuba, El Salvador, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Jamaica, Mexico, Nicaragua and Panama. Three additional teams will be determined by preliminary round games in June.
The draw of four four-team groups is Friday.
The match schedule will be released following the draw.
