Miami (September 8, 2015) – The Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF) today confirmed details of the ticket purchase lottery for the CONCACAF Cup, presented by Scotiabank, which opens tomorrow Wednesday, September 9. The match between Mexico and the United States will be played Saturday, October 10, at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, CA (9:00 p.m. ET). The winner of the CONCACAF Cup will earn a berth in the prestigious FIFA Confederations Cup, to be played in Russia in 2017.
Beginning tomorrow Wednesday, September 9 at 6:00 a.m. ET and through September 18 at 11:59 p.m. ET, fans will be able to apply online at www.CONCACAF.com for the right to purchase tickets via a lottery system. The winning lottery applicants will be notified from September 16-18, and will then be able to purchase up to six tickets per application, through September 18 at 11:59 p.m. ET. Lottery winners will be randomly selected via a third-party lottery service provider. All attendees, including children aged two and over, must have a ticket.
To date, more than 30,000 tickets have already been sold through independent pre-sales organized by the participating federations.
Once the CONCACAF ticket lottery has been finalized, a limited amount of tickets will be made available to the general public on September 29. More information on that process will be released in coming weeks.
In 2013, CONCACAF announced the split of the region's berth to the FIFA Confederations Cup between two editions of the CONCACAF Gold Cup, assuring that both editions of the Gold Cup in each four-year cycle have the same importance from a competitive perspective. By winning the recent 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup, Mexico qualified for the CONCACAF Cup, presented by Scotiabank, against the 2013 Gold Cup champion, the United States.
