Canada Soccer releases 40-man Provisional List for CONCACAF Gold Cup

Posted on 6 June 2017 in Men's National Team

Ahead of this summer’s CONCACAF Gold Cup, Canada Soccer have submitted their official Provisional List of 40 players eligible for the 2017 confederation championship. All 12 nations can only select players from their respective 40-man rosters, starting with the 23-player squads that will dress for the group phase of the competition which starts 7 July.

The CONCACAF Gold Cup is the official national team championship of the confederation, this year running from 7-26 July across 14 venues in the United States. Drawing large crowds and millions of television viewers from across the region, the CONCACAF Gold Cup is a celebration of soccer, sportsmanship, and culture. Canada will play their group matches on 7 July against French Guiana in Harrison, on 11 July against Costa Rica in Houston, and on 14 July against Honduras in Frisco just outside Dallas.

“There is a motivation that Canadian players must have - the pride and the passion - in wearing the Canadian shirt,” said Octavio Zambrano, Head Coach of the Men’s National Team Program. “It is not a shirt that can be given to just anyone, it is something that players need to earn and, once they put it on, they need to feel something different.”

Canada Soccer will select their 23-man squad for the CONCACAF Gold Cup in mid June after a home international friendly match in Montréal. The team will open camp on 28 June in Ottawa, one day after the final match of the 2017 Canadian Championship between Toronto FC and Impact Montréal FC at BMO Field.

From the list of 23 players, nations can replace a player in the event of serious injury up until 24 hours before the team's first match in the group phase. After the group phase, each nation can amend their 23-man roster and replace up to six players with six new players. Throughout the CONCACAF Gold Cup, all replacements must come from the Provisional List of 40 players.

SUMMER OF SOCCER IN CANADA
This summer, Canada Soccer's National Teams will play in Winnipeg, Toronto and Montréal from 8-13 June. The Women's National Team will face Costa Rica on 8 June at Investors Group Field and 11 June at BMO Field before the Men's National Team, in their send-off match before the CONCACAF Gold Cup, face Curaçao on 13 June at Stade Saputo.
