Other Texas cities selected to play host include San Antonio, Arlington and Frisco. San Antonio is a first-time host.

Houston has hosted a Gold Cup game for the previous six tournaments and has played host to a number of other attention-worthy sporting events recently, including next month’s Super Bowl LI.
