The United States National soccer team with host Haiti at Gillette Stadium on Friday, July 10 at 8:30 p.m. as part of the Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football Gold Cup doubleheader. The game will be preceded by a match between Panama and the winner of the playoff series between French Guiana and Honduras at 6 p.m.
Since the stadium opened in 2002, Gillette Stadium has hosted the biennial tournament five times for the 2003, 2005, 2007, 2009, and now the 2015 editions of the Gold Cup.
Haiti and the US team faced off in Foxborough in 2009. The first-round match ended in heartbreak for Haiti when the US scored an equalizer in injury time to make the final 2-2.
This is the first time the US team has played at Gillette since a June 2011 loss in a friendly against Spain. This is also the first time the US team will appear at the stadium under the leadership of head coach Jügen Klinsmann.
The US team’s record in Gold Cup games at Gillette is 6-0-2, while their overall record at the stadium stands at 9-2-2. Their record for matches played in Massachusetts stands at 16-2-5.
Tickets to all Gold Cup matches are now available to the general public starting by visiting www.GoldCup.org.
To date, 11 of the 12 national teams scheduled to participate have qualified for this year’s tournament. Canada, Costa Rica, Cuba, El Salvador, Guatemala, Haiti, Jamaica, Mexico, Panama, Trinidad & Tobago and the United States, in alphabetical order, will compete for the Confederation Crown in July.
The final spot will be decided later this month through a play-in series between the fifth-place finisher of the 2014 UNCAF Central American Cup (Honduras) and the 2014 Caribbean Football Union Caribbean Cup (French Guiana). French Guiana will be home team for the first leg on March 25, while Honduras will host the return leg on March 29.
Taking place every two years, the Gold Cup has established itself as the region's most popular national team tournament.
