The provisional rosters for the 2021 CONCACAF Gold Cup have been submitted ahead of the 25 nations competing in the 16th edition of the Confederation’s premier competition for men’s national teams.
The rosters have been selected and submitted by each of the teams and are published as such. In order to be eligible to play in the 2021 CONCACAF Gold Cup, all players are subject to and must fully comply with the criteria stipulated in the applicable FIFA player eligibility regulations.
The final 23-player rosters for all participating teams will be confirmed prior to the start of the Preliminary Round (Prelims).
