The Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF) announced that tickets to the 2019 CONCACAF Gold Cup doubleheader match at Minnesota’s state-of-the-art Allianz Field have officially sold out.
This is the earliest a Gold Cup match has sold out in the history of the tournament, highlighting the appetite for football in the Minnesota metropolitan area and region overall. The first international sporting event in the new venue, which is scheduled to open in March 2019, will feature the debut of the United States and its Group D opponents in the upcoming edition of the Gold Cup, on Tuesday, June 18.
