The CONCACAF Gold Cup is a soccer tournament held after every two years. This premier competition determines the confederation champion from three regions, North America, Central America and the Caribbean. Twelve teams take part in it, out of which three teams are from North America, four are from Central America and four are from the Caribbean. The last team is determined by the playoff winner between the fifth ranked teams in the Caribbean Cup and the Copa Centroamericana. The US won the 2013 edition of the Gold Cup, after defeating Panama in the final. This year’s edition is now about to get underway. If you are a soccer fan, then book your CONCACAF Gold Cup Philadelphia tickets and watch the best nations from the region compete for the prestigious title.
The CONCACAF Gold Cup used to feature eight teams but in 2000 the competition allowed twelve teams to take part in the tournament, resulting in a more competitive scenario. As a result, the Gold Cup has become an exceptionally popular event, with millions of television viewers and thousands of spectators.
The inaugural edition was held in 1991 and since then, Mexico has won six titles, the most by any country. The United States closely follows with five wins, while Canada is the only other nation to win the Gold Cup. This year’s edition will also feature a game for the third place, also to be held in Philadelphia. It will be the first time since 2003 that an encounter will take place to decide the third best team in the tournament.

The US team had a phenomenal tournament in 2013, when they cruised to the semis, after a compelling 5 -1 win over El Salvador in the quarterfinals. This win set the tone for their next match and they overcame Honduras, three goals to one to earn a place in the finals. They held their nerve and won that showpiece clash against Panama one goal to nil.
The action is about to kick-off in the CONCACAF Gold Cup once again. It promises to be yet another pulsating event of what is one of the most coveted titles in the sport today.
