Miami (August 27, 2015) - The Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF) today announced details for the ticketing process to be implemented for the CONCACAF Cup, which is being presented by Scotiabank – the FIFA Confederations Cup playoff match between the United States and Mexico on Saturday, October 10, at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, CA (6 pm PT). The winner of the CONCACAF Cup will earn a berth in the prestigious FIFA Confederations Cup, to be played in Russia in 2017.
Beginning on Wednesday, September 9, fans will be able to apply online at www.CONCACAF.com for the right to purchase tickets via a lottery system. The winning applicants will be notified by September 18, when they will be able to select specific seating preferences (limit six tickets per application, one entry per household).
A supplemental ticketing process for select USA and Mexico supporters groups will also be organized independently through each federation.
A limited amount of tickets will be made available to the general public on September 29. More information will be released in coming weeks.
“One of our goals for this game was to make the Rose Bowl a representation of both passionate fan bases,” said CONCACAF Acting General Secretary Ted Howard. “The interest and demand for an event of this magnitude requires a process that allows for an opportunity for a fair and equitable distribution of tickets.”
In 2013, CONCACAF announced the split of the region's berth to the FIFA Confederations Cup between two editions of the CONCACAF Gold Cup, assuring that both editions of the Gold Cup in each four-year cycle have the same importance from a competitive perspective. By winning the recent 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup, Mexico qualified for the CONCACAF Cup, Presented by Scotiabank, against the 2013 Gold Cup champion, the United States.
