2018 CONCACAF Women's Championship

The CONCACAF Women's Championship, in some years called the CONCACAF Women's Gold Cup or the CONCACAF Women's World Cup qualifying, is a football competition organized by CONCACAF that often serves as the qualifying competition to the Women's World Cup. In years when the tournament has been held outside the World Cup qualifying cycle, non-CONCACAF members have been invited. CONCACAF (the Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football) is the governing body for football for North America, Central America and the Caribbean. The most successful country has been the United States, winning their eighth title in 2018.[2]

History[edit]

2000 Gold Cup[edit]

The first Women's Gold Cup Qualifying Tournament (qualifying for the Women's World Cup) was hosted by the U.S. in 2000. Six member women's national teams participated: Canada, the U.S., Costa Rica, Guatemala, Mexico, Trinidad & Tobago, as well as two invited teams, Brazil and China.[3] The U.S. won. The 2002 Women's Gold Cup, held in Canada, was restricted to qualifying CONCACAF teams.

2002[edit]

Played in four venues and two countries over 14 days by eight teams, the 2002 Women's Gold Cup guaranteed two World Cup slots and one playoff spot to winners. After 16 games, played as 8 doubleheaders, the U.S.A. beat Canada in overtime. Mia Hamm scored the golden goal, taking the U.S. to their second Women's Gold Cup title. The U.S. had a 9–0–1 Gold Cup record, including 48 goals for and two goals against, both scored by Charmaine Hooper of Canada.

2006[edit]

The 2006 CONCACAF Women's Gold Cup was held in the United States, with games being hosted at The Home Depot Center in Carson, California and Tropical Park Stadium in Miami, Florida. This 2007 World Cup qualifying tournament featured six teams in single-elimination, with the top two teams qualifying directly for the 2007 FIFA Women's World Cup in China. Additionally, the third-place finisher played a two-legged home-and-away playoff against Japan (the fourth-place finisher from the Asian Confederation).[4]
