CONCACAF GOLD CUP
The 2 September match will be Canada’s first international match following this summer’s CONCACAF Gold Cup. Canada kick off the biennial competition this 7 July in Harrison, NJ against French Guiana, with ensuing group matches on 11 July in Houston, TX against Costa Rica and 14 July in Frisco, TX against Honduras.
Taking place every two years, the CONCACAF Gold Cup is the official national team championship of North America, Central America and the Caribbean. Drawing large crowds and millions of television viewers from across the region, the Gold Cup is a celebration of soccer, sportsmanship, and culture.
Canada are two-time CONCACAF champions, having won the CONCACAF Championship in 1985 and the CONCACAF Gold Cup 2000. Since the first edition of the CONCACAF Gold Cup in 1991, Canada’s best finishes are first place in 2000 and semi-final finishes in 2002 and 2007. All time, Canada have posted a record of 15 wins, 11 draws, and 15 losses in 41 matches.
CANADA SOCCER HALL OF FAME
Ahead of the 2 September match, Canada Soccer will officially honour Paul Stalteri as a member of the Canada Soccer Hall of Fame. The CONCACAF champion and former Men’s National Team captain will be celebrated as part of the pre-match festivities at BMO Field.
Stalteri has been inducted as a player as part of the Class of 2017 (alongside Amy Walsh who will be celebrated on 11 June before a Women’s National Team match in Toronto). A CONCACAF champion in 2000, the two-time Canadian Player of the Year represented Canada at the FIFA Confederations Cup Korea/Japan 2001. He won both a Bundesliga title and a German Cup (DPF-Pokal) with Werder Breman in 2004.
