    GUATEMALA CITY, Guatemala (Sunday, June 1, 2014) – The Central American Football Union (UNCAF) announced today that BBVA Compass Stadium in Houston, Texas, will host a Central American Cup USA 2014 triple-header on Wednesday, September 10, the last day of group play.

    The Central American Cup is the region’s championship for national teams, which will also serve as a qualifying competition for the 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup and, on this occasion, the Centennial Cup America 2016.

    BBVA Compass Stadium, home to Major League Soccer’s Houston Dynamo, hosted a sold-out group stage double-header during the 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup.

    UNCAF’s seven member associations – Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and Panama – will dispute the 13th edition of the Central American Cup in cities across the United States from September 3-13, 2014.

    In addition to providing a series of berths in important international tournaments, the Central American Cup USA 2014 will be held in celebration of UNCAF’s upcoming 25th anniversary.

    The Central American Cup has been contested 12 times, beginning in 1991. Costa Rica is the current champion and has been crowned a record seven times.  Honduras is next with three titles, while Guatemala and Panama have won one each.

    The tournament’s Final will be held at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum on September 13.  Further venue announcements and information about groups and scheduling will be released in the coming weeks.  

    The Organizing Committee for the Central American Cup USA 2014 is headed by CONCACAF and Soccer United Marketing.  Tickets for the Central American Cup will go on sale in July.
