Just two days after CONCACAF announced that the 2013 Gold Cup would open at the Rose Bowl with the Mexican National Team, sources have confirmed to SBI that the 2013 Gold Cup Final will take place at Soldier Field in Chicago.
Soldier Field hosted the 2007 Gold Cup Final won by the United States (which defeated Mexico thanks to Benny Feilhaber’s memorable game-winning goal).
A total of 13 venues across the country have been chosen to serve has host venues for Gold Cup matches, and with the Rose Bowl being ruled out of hosting the final for a second straight Gold Cup by being chosen for the opening match, Chicago beat out Miami and Dallas for the chance to host the final.
Dallas and Miami are believed to be in the running to host the Gold Cup semifinals, though it should be noted that Soldier Field hosted the semifinals and final in the 2007 Gold Cup.
What do you think of this development? Plan on going to Chicago for the Final? Think the Final should be hosted somewhere else?
