    "The support of fans in every Gold Cup venue has been incredible,” said CONCACAF President, Jeffrey Webb.  “I am extremely happy with the news from Baltimore that Sunday's Quarterfinal doubleheader at M&T Bank Stadium is sold out.  It will be a tremendous day for soccer, CONCACAF, the Gold Cup and the city of Baltimore.
