Concacaf Monday confirmed the sixteen teams that will participate in the 2019 Concacaf Gold Cup, following the conclusion of the Concacaf Nations League qualifying round Sunday.
After 68 matches of the one-off qualifying round, the following top 10 ranked teams have qualified for the 2019 Gold Cup, based on points earned, goal difference and a series of additional tie breaker criteria.
The teams are (in alphabetical order): Bermuda, Canada, Cuba, Curacao, El Salvador, Guyana, Haiti, Jamaica, Martinique and Nicaragua.
These teams will join Costa Rica, Honduras, Mexico, Panama, Trinidad and Tobago and United States, who have qualified by virtue of having participated in the 2018 World Cup hexagonal.
The 2019 Gold Cup will be the largest edition of the event, with more participating nations (up from 12 in 2017), more host countries (three, including first-time matches in Costa Rica and a yet-to-be-named Caribbean nation), and more stadiums (17 up from 14 in 2017, eight of which are in contention to become 2026 World Cup venues).
Full groups and schedule will be unveiled in Los Angeles Wednesday, April 10.
