On Monday, Concacaf (The Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football) announced BMO Field, home of Toronto FC of Major League Soccer (MLS) and the National Soccer Stadium, as a host venue for the 2023 Gold Cup. The 17th edition of the Concacaf Gold Cup, the Confederation's premier competition for men's national teams, will be played from June 16 to July 16, crowning the best national team in the region.
"We are honoured to host one of the most important tournaments of the Concacaf region and thrilled to welcome the Gold Cup back to BMO Field," said Toronto FC President Bill Manning. "We've seen the growth of this sport in recent years, and BMO Field has witnessed the most memorable moments in the history of Canadian soccer. It will be an incredible opportunity to continue celebrating soccer in our city and community as we prepare for the 2026 FIFA World Cup. We are committed to providing a memorable and enjoyable experience for international teams and fans."
