The 2019 CONCACAF Gold Cup will be the 15th edition of the CONCACAF Gold Cup, the biennial international men's football championship of the North, Central American, and Caribbean region organized by CONCACAF.

The winner of this tournament will play against the United States, winner of the 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup in the 2019 CONCACAF Cup, a one-match playoff to determine CONCACAF's qualifier for the 2021 FIFA Confederations Cup. If the United States wins the 2019 Gold Cup, it automatically qualifies for the Confederations Cup as holders of 2017 and 2019 titles.

In February 2018, CONCACAF announced that 16 teams will be taking part, an increase from 12.[1][2]

Qualified teams[edit]

The qualification system has been changed and no longer divided into Central American and Caribbean zones. Among the 16 teams, six qualify directly after participating in the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying Hexagonal, while the other 10 teams qualify through the 2019–20 CONCACAF Nations League qualifying.
