    Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum to Host Central American Cup 2014 USA Final on September 13

    Regional championship to be contested outside Central America for first time

    GUATEMALA CITY, Guatemala (Tuesday, May 27, 2014) – The Central American Football Union (UNCAF) today announced that the Final of the Central American Cup 2014 USA will be played at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum on September 13.

    The Central American Cup is the region’s national team championship, which also serves as a qualifying competition for the CONCACAF Gold Cup and, on this occasion, the Centennial Cup America 2016.  The tournament’s defining match day will feature a triple-header that consists of the Final, plus the matches for third- and fifth-place. 

    Announcements about other host cities and venues, as well as groups and scheduling, will be made over the coming weeks.

    Also, today, the new Central American Cup logo was unveiled. 

    The historical Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, located next to the Sports Arena in Exposition Park, has hosted two Olympic Games (1932, 1984), two Super Bowls (1967, 1973) and a World Series (1959), as well as five CONCACAF Gold Cups (1991, 1996, 1998, 2000 and 2005), including four finals.  It is currently home to the University of Southern California (USC) football team.

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