The U.S. captured the Gold Cup title in 2007,
earning a 2009 FIFA Confederations Cup berth.
The U.S. will learn its path to the regional title when CONCACAF announces the groups and match schedule for the 2011 Gold Cup on concacaf.com Tuesday, March 8 at 12 p.m. ET. The confederation championship will run from June 5-25 in 13 different stadia across the United States, culminating at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena for the championship final.
The United States will be seeking its fifth Gold Cup title, with victories including the inaugural tournament in 1991 and back-to-back trophies in 2005 and 2007. The winner of this summer’s tournament will represent CONCACAF at the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup in Brazil.
The 2-1 defeat of Mexico in the 2007 final launched the USA's memorable run through the 2009 FIFA Confederations Cup in which they defeated No-1 ranked Spain in the semifinal before falling 3-2 to Brazil in the championship match.
