(Wednesday, July 22, 2015) – The following is a press release from the Confederation of North, Central America and the Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF).
CONCACAF today announced that all tickets have been sold for the CONCACAF Gold Cup 2015 Final, which will be played this Sunday, July 26 (7:30 p.m. ET) at Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field.
More than 66,000 fans are expected, making the Final likely to establish an all-time high for the largest crowd ever to attend a soccer match in Philadelphia, besting the previous record of 57,305, for a Real Madrid vs. Philadelphia Union exhibition match at Lincoln Financial Field in 2011.
Tickets for the Third-Place game of the CONCACAF Gold Cup 2015 are still available via www.GoldCup.org. That match will be played at PPL Park in nearby Chester, PA, on Saturday, July 25 at 4 p.m. ET. The 2015 Gold Cup finals weekend promises to be a celebration of the best soccer nations in the region, offering sports fans a taste of the beautiful sport to cap off the summer.
The Gold Cup semifinals – to be played this Wednesday evening, July 22, at a sold-out Georgia Dome in Atlanta — will feature the United States vs. Jamaica and Panama vs. Mexico in an historic double-header set to determine the finals weekend’s matchups. The games can be seen in the United States on the Fox Sports 1, UniMás and UDN, and can be heard on Fútbol de Primera radio network.
Organizers encourage fans with tickets to the Final in Philadelphia to arrive early to enjoy Futbol Fiesta, the interactive fan-zone starting at 3:30 p.m. at HeadHouse Plaza in the north end of Lincoln Financial Field. Parking lots will open at 2:30 p.m., and stadium gates will open at 6 p.m. — all times local. The Gold Cup Final will be televised nationally on the Fox Sports and Univision family of networks, and can also be heard on the Fútbol de Primera radio network.
With Sunday’s sellout — the sixth of the tournament, joining Dallas, Houston, Phoenix, Kansas City and Atlanta – the 2015 Gold Cup ticket sales will surpass 500,000, placing this edition among the most successful tournaments in CONCACAF history.
