The 2023 Concacaf Gold Cup is only three months away and the 15 venues that will host matches during this summer’s tournament have officially been announced.
San Diego, St. Louis, and Cincinnati were among the 14 cities announced by Concacaf on Monday, who will all play host to group stage and knockout stage matches. Los Angeles’ SoFi Stadium was already announced as the host of the tournament final.
“The Concacaf Gold Cup is our flagship competition and showcases the very best of men’s national team football in the region,” Concacaf President and FIFA Vice President Victor Montagliani said. “With each passing edition, this competition has reached new heights on and off the pitch and I am certain the 2023 tournament will deliver outstanding football, and capture the imagination of fans across our confederation and beyond.
“The host cities and venues we have selected all have strong track records of hosting elite football, and world class events,” Montagliani added. “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.”
