The 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup is the 14th edition of the CONCACAF Gold Cup, a biennial international men's football championship of the North, Central American, and Caribbean region organised by CONCACAF. The tournament is being held from 7 to 26 July.
The winners of this tournament will play against the winners of the 2019 CONCACAF Gold Cup in the 2019 CONCACAF Cup, a one-match play-off to determine CONCACAF's qualifier for the 2021 FIFA Confederations Cup. If the same team wins both the 2017 and 2019 Gold Cups, it automatically qualifies for the Confederations Cup.
A total of 12 teams will qualify for the tournament. Three berths are allocated to North America, four to Central America, four to the Caribbean, and one to the winners of the play-off between the two fifth-placed teams of the Caribbean zone and the Central American zone.
