Held every two years, the CONCACAF Gold Cup pits the best international soccer teams from North America, Central America, and the Caribbean against each other. But regardless of where you are on the planet, our guide below for getting a 2019 CONCACAF Gold Cup live stream will ensure you don’t miss a kick – it’s even free to watch in certain regions.
This year’s tournament has been expanded to involve 16 countries, up from the previous 14 with all participating teams this year coming from the three CONCACAF regions (previous editions have seen ‘guest’ countries from other continents help make up the numbers).
CONCACAF Gold Cup 2019 – where and when
The US will be the primary host country with games being played at 15 venues across the country, while Jamaica and Costa Rica will also host a double-header each.
The tournament takes place over 31 matches with the action having kicked off on Saturday, June 15 and culminating in the final on Sunday, July 7 at Chicago’s Soldier Field.
As ever, Mexico and primary hosts the USA are viewed as favorites (the two teams have alternated as champions in the previous four Gold Cup tournaments), but recent times have seen an improvement in some of the smaller CONCACAF nations meaning the big guns are likely to find things a great deal more difficult this time out.
They may be among the favorites with Betfair, but USA’s form going in to the tournament is far from convincing. The USMT suffered morale-sapping defeats against Jamaica and Venezuela in their two pre-tournament friendlies, and have been dealt a blow with the news that an injury to RB Leipzig defender Tyler Adams will keep him out of the competition.
Rivals Mexico have even bigger issues when it comes to missing personnel, with recognisable names such as Javier Hernández, Carlos Vela and Héctor Herrera all unavailable for the tournament. Luckily they still have talent in abundance, with in-form Wolverhampton Wanderers star Raúl Jiménez a likely contender for the tournament’s golden boot.
The team most likely to capitalise on the USA and Mexico’s problems are Costa Rica. The Ticos have seen continued improvement in recent times and have been placed in a favorable group that should see their experienced squad led by Bryan Ruiz, Celso Borges and Kendall Waston sail through to the later stages.
Jamaica also look to be a good outside bet, but they’ll have to get over the psychological burden of having been beaten finalists in the last two tournaments.
If you want to know where you’ll be able to watch every single soccer match, we’ll tell you exactly where you can catch them online with our CONCACAF Gold Cup 2019 live stream guide.
