United States at the CONCACAF Gold Cup

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search
The United States line-up during the national anthem before their 2015 quarter-final against Cuba. The United States ended up winning 6–0, their joint-highest Gold Cup victory of all time.

The United States national team has participated in all fifteen editions of the CONCACAF Gold Cup since its foundation in 1991 to replace the CONCACAF Championship. The United States is also the second-most successful team in the tournament, having won seven titles since the beginning of the Gold Cup, behind Mexico by just two titles. Before the Gold Cup however, the United States only qualified for two of the previous ten CONCACAF Championships (1985 and 1989).

Since its inception in 1991, the CONCACAF Gold Cup is continually hosted or co-hosted by the United States (due to the United States being the only country that can host a profitable tournament), therefore the United States have frequently participated in the tournament and are considered to be one of the two major teams alongside Mexico. They have reached the final ten times, losing four out of five times when facing Mexico, but winning the other five finals against various opponents.
