MIAMI, Florida – July is Concacaf Gold Cup month at Concacaf and over the course of the month, Concacaf will be re-airing classic matches from previous Gold Cup tournaments via Concacaf’s Facebook and YouTube pages, plus the Concacaf App.
It all gets started this Friday with the broadcast of the inaugural Gold Cup Final in 1991 between the United States and Honduras played at the Memorial Coliseum in Los Angeles, in which the U.S. emerged victorious from a penalty shootout, 4-3, following a 0-0 draw to claim the first ever Gold Cup title.
That will be followed by the 2019 Final between Mexico and the U.S. played last summer in front of a sold-out Soldier Field in Chicago where El Tricolor won their record eighth Gold Cup crown with a 1-0 victory
Interviews with figures from the inaugural Gold Cup, including U.S. GK Tony Meola, U.S. Head Coach Bora Milutinovic and man who scored the first ever Gold Cup goal, Eduardo Bennett of Honduras, will be made available on Concacaf.com.
The following week Concacaf will be broadcasting the Final from the 2017 Gold Cup when the U.S. won the tournament for a sixth time when they defeated Jamaica, 2-1.
Later that evening, the unforgettable Final of the 2003 Gold Cup between Mexico and Brazil will be shown, as Mexico won the tournament against the then-reigning World Cup champions with a Golden Goal in front of their home crowd at the Estadio Azteca in Mexico City.
It all marks the start of what should be a very memorable Concacaf Gold Cup July.
