Canada opens the Gold Cup on Wednesday 8 July against El Salvador at StubHub Center in Carson, California, USA. They then head to Houston to take on Jamaica on 11 July before coming to Toronto to take on Costa Rica at BMO Field on 14 July.
TICKETS: Tickets for the 14 July CONCACAF Gold Cup double-header, including Canada v Costa Rica, are still available on ticketmaster.ca starting at $25 (plus applicable fees).
It will be the first time a CONCACAF Gold Cup game takes place in Canada.
Canada will assemble at the end of June in Santa Barbara, California prior to the tournament’s opening game.
