The 2011 CONCACAF Gold Cup was the 11th edition of the CONCACAF Gold Cup competition and 21st CONCACAF regional championship overall in CONCACAF's fifty years of existence. The United States was the host nation.

The competition started on June 5, 2011 at the Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, and ended with the final on June 25, 2011 at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California,[2] with Mexico beating the United States 4-2.

This competition was the fifth tournament without guests from other confederations. Mexico won their sixth Gold Cup, and ninth CONCACAF Championship overall. It was the third consecutive Gold Cup final and second consecutive win also.

As winner of the tournament, Mexico qualified for the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup in Brazil as the representative from CONCACAF.[3][4]

Draw

The teams learned their path to the regional title when CONCACAF announced the groups and match schedule for the 2011 Gold Cup on concacaf.com Tuesday, March 8 at 12 pm ET. The confederation championship ran from June 5 to 25 in 13 different stadiums across the United States, culminating at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena for the championship final.[11]

Group stage

For the first round, or group stage, the twelve teams were divided into three groups of four teams. Each group was a round-robin of six games, where each team played one match against each of the other teams in the same group. Teams were awarded three points for a win, one point for a draw and none for a defeat. The teams finishing first and second in each group, as well as the two best-placed third teams among all groups, qualified for the quarter-finals.

If two or more teams are equal on points (including ties among third place teams), the manner in which teams advance to the next round are resolved as follows and in the order indicated:[12]

  1. Greater number of points in matches between the tied teams.
  2. Greater goal difference in matches between the tied teams (if more than two teams finish equal on points).
  3. Greater number of goals scored in matches among the tied teams (if more than two teams finish equal on points).
  4. Greater goal difference in all group matches.
  5. Greater number of goals scored in all group matches.
  6. Drawing of lots.
