CONCACAF region revealed host cities for its championship next year

In 2019 we will know even 3 regional title winners in a space of 7 months. The first one is starting in Asia on January, while champions from both American continents are going to be known at the summer. One of them is from the CONMEBOL region, while the other is CONCACAF who will seek its own champion. Unfortunately, both events are going to coincide with each other, but we hope that matches will not be played at the same time.
Gold Cup is the most prestigious competition at the continent and next year is going to be played in United States of America (not in full). Its games from 2019 edition will be the fifteenth time that the region is going to search for champion. This event thrice is going to have something for the first time: expanded tournament of 16 teams, some matches will be played on 2 new football stadiums plus Caribbean and Central America would also have the opportunity to host games and be part of this great tournament.
Four days ago it was decided that stadiums in Chicago, Charlotte, Cleveland, Denver, Frisco, Glendale, Harrison, Kansas City, Nashville, Pasadena, Philadelphia, with the above 2 new grounds in Saint Paul and Los Angeles plus together with 2 stadiums in Houston are jointly making 15 stadiums in 14 cities across the country. Also at a later date, matches that are going to be played in new parts of the continent will be announced. 'With the upcoming selection of additional venues in the Caribbean and Central America, the Gold Cup becomes a regional event on even more levels' said president of CONCACAF region Victor Montagliani.
