Several venues sold out ahead of next week’s games
CONCACAF Gold Cup
The Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF) today announced that the 2019 CONCACAF Gold Cup group doubleheader at Houston’s BBVA Stadium is sold out. Additionally, Group C doubleheader in Los Angeles’ Banc of California Stadium, as well as the Group D doubleheader at Children’s Mercy Park in Kansas City are nearing sellouts.
BBVA Stadium joins Minnesota’s state-of-the-art Allianz Field as a sold out venue. Minnesota officially sold out in December of last year, the fastest sellout in tournament history.
The doubleheader in Houston on June 21 will feature the national teams of Honduras, El Salvador, Jamaica and Curaçao in the crucial second game of round-robin group play. El Salvador will face Jamaica at 7:00 pm ET, followed by Honduras taking on Curacao at 9:30 pm ET. The same teams will head to Banc of California Stadium on June 25 to close out the group stages.
The Group D doubleheader in Kansas City will feature the United States vs. Panama, while Trinidad and Tobago open the day’s play against Guyana, as all four teams battle to head to the next stage of the tournament.
Taking place every two years, the CONCACAF Gold Cup is the region’s premier national team competition, which includes North, Central America and the Caribbean, and crowns the region’s best national team while celebrating soccer, sportsmanship and culture.
The 2019 CONCACAF Gold Cup is sponsored by Allstate Insurance Company, Camarena Tequila, Cerveza Modelo, Nike, Scotiabank, Toyota, and Valvoline. The tournament will be broadcast nationally on the Univision and FOX family of networks and transmitted on radio in Spanish by Fútbol de Primera Radio Network, and broadcast by television partners in countries around the world.
This means that the Guyana Golden Jaguars will make their CONCACAF debut and play their group games in front of a sold out crowd.
The Guyanese senior men’s National team was drawn in Group D of the 2019 Gold Cup, alongside USA, Panama and Trinidad and Tobago. They will play their opening game against defending champions USA at Allianz Field Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Their second game will be against at First Energy Stadium, Cleveland, Ohio and the Jags will close out the group stage against Caribbean counterparts Trinidad and Tobago at Children’s Mercy Park, Kansas City, Kansas.
