The Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF) has announced that AT&T Stadium in Arlington will host a CONCACAF Gold Cup Knockout Round on July 22.

Tickets will go on sale to the general public starting February 22.

AT&T Stadium has hosted the confederation’s championship tournament in three previous editions, including the quarterfinals in 2009, the 2011 tournament kick-off and the 2013 semifinals, all of which welcomed more than 80,000 fans to each event.

Taking place every two years, the CONCACAF Gold Cup is the official national team championship of the region, which includes North and Central America and the Caribbean. Drawing large crowds and millions of television viewers across the region, the Gold Cup is a celebration of soccer, sportsmanship, and culture.  The winner of the 2017 tournament will win continental bragging rights and an assured spot in the CONCACAF Cup play-in game to qualify for the 2021 FIFA Confederations Cup, if needed.
