Philadelphia continues to host the very best in international soccer, as Lincoln Financial Field will host the CONCACAF Gold Cup Final on July 26. The best national teams from North and Central America and the Caribbean will compete in this biennial event, sure to draw thousands of visiting fans to the area. The third-place match will be played July 25 at PPL Park.
The U.S. team has been in the final match for every Gold Cup since 2005, last defeating Panama in front of 58,000 fans at Chicago’s Soldier Field in 2013.
“We are thrilled to be the host city for the 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup weekend and are looking forward to showcasing the world’s most popular sport in our world-class city,” Mayor Michael Nutter said.
“Events like these are about venues and partnerships,” said Larry Needle, executive director of the Philadelphia Sports Congress, a division of the Philadelphia Convention & Visitors Bureau. “We’re incredibly lucky as a city to have world-class partners like the Eagles and Union and their superb venues – Lincoln Financial Field and PPL Park. We can’t wait to help in rolling out the red carpet for CONCACAF this summer.”
