East End's BBVA Compass Stadium to Host 2017 Gold Cup

East End's BBVA Compass Stadium to Host 2017 Gold Cup

We shoot, we score!

The Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football, or (CONCACAF), has selected 14 stadiums in 13 cities to host the 2017 Gold Cup, a soccer tournament that’s held every two years. Two of the matches will be played at our own BBVA Compass Stadium on July 11.

While the teams have not been selected for the two Houston matches yet, the U.S. and Mexico National Teams have been scheduled in other cities. Those two teams have won every Gold Cup since 2002.

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.
