    Montagliani: Gold Cup is pinnacle of our CONCACAF football

    CONCACAF President Victor Montagliani opened the official event to announce the group-stage matches and complete schedule for the 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup. The announcement was held Tuesday at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, CA – first time host of the Gold Cup final. 

    “Gold Cup is pinnacle of our CONCACAF football. Since the inaugural edition in 1991, the competition has produced many memorable moments and equally stunning results,” said Montagliani to the group composed of football and city dignitaries, representatives and head coaches from the qualified nations. “This is a day to celebrate the teams achievements, congratulations to all of you.” 

    The procedures were conducted by CONCACAF General Secretary Philippe Moggio. The event featured U.S. national team legend Cobi Jones, San Francisco 49ers President Al Guido, and San Jose Earthquakes President Dave Kaval.

    The President underscored the competition’s importance to raise competitiveness and further develop the game across the Confederation. Furthermore, he spoke briefly about the ONE CONCACAF Vision, which focuses attention on good governance, football investment, solid leadership and strategic planning. 

    “Our aim is at ensuring that we continue broadening participation for our Member Associations, while increasing competitiveness through development opportunities,” said Montagliani. 

    Fourteen stadiums in 13 metropolitan areas across the United States will host the next Gold Cup to be played from July 7-26, 2017.

    Taking place every two years, the Gold Cup has established itself as the region's most popular national team tournament. Featuring the Confederation's best players from 12 top nations, the competition routinely draws capacity crowds and millions of television viewers across the region and around the world.
