Concacaf Gold Cup Atlanta Tickets
The Concacaf Gold Cup is where the team that represents the North American, Central American and Caribbean region in the football World Cup comes forward. The competition is known as the ‘Copa de Oro de la CONCACAF’ in Spanish language countries.
The event takes place once every two years. Before the current edition of the Cup, the rule was that in case the Gold Cup and the FIFA Confederations Cup were not held in the same year, the team with the highest ranking and holding a membership of both the FIFA and CONCACAF would be allowed to represent the region in the World Cup Finals. However, now the rule has been slightly modified so that winners of the previous two editions of the Gold Cup square off against each other. This determines which country qualifies for the Confederations Cup. In the case of one team having won the last two Gold Cup editions, there will be no qualifier and that team will be considered eligible to play in the Confederations Cup.
So far, the Concacaf Gold Cup has been held 13 times. During this time, only three teams have won the event with Mexico winning six times and USA five times. Canada is the only other team besides USA and Mexico to have won the event.
This time fans and football analysts are predicting a tighter and tougher competition as some teams have shown better quality during the World Cup. Many are expecting a new champion instead of USA and Mexico as a result. In spite of being the defending champion, the US Football team will have to contend with Group A, which has been dubbed as ‘The Group of Death.’ Be there to witness the action live.
