The 2011 CONCACAF Gold Cup is the 11th edition of the CONCACAF Gold Cup competition and 20th CONCACAF regional championship overall. The winner of the tournament will qualify for the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup in Brazil. The United States is the host nation; the final will be played at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California on June 25, 2011.[1]

For more details on this topic, see 2011 CONCACAF Gold Cup squads.

Each team can register a squad of 23 players.
[edit] Suspension of Mexican players

It was announced during the tournament on June 9, 2011, that five Mexican players, Antônio Naelson, Christian Bermúdez, Édgar Dueñas, Francisco Javier Rodríguez and Guillermo Ochoa, all tested positive for clenbuterol prior to the Gold Cup and have therefore been withdrawn from the squad.[3] Mexican officials said they believed the positive tests were caused by eating meat tainted with the drug.[4] CONCACAF General Secretary Chuck Blazer said a meeting of the confederation's national teams committee, which also serves as the organizing committee of the Gold Cup, was to be convened on June 10 to consider the situation, including possibly allowing Mexico to replace the five players. However, the meeting was postponed to allow for more information to be gathered.[5]
[edit] Draw

The teams learned their path to the regional title when CONCACAF announced the groups and match schedule for the 2011 Gold Cup on Tuesday, March 8 at 12 pm ET. The confederation championship will run from June 5 to 25 in 13 different stadiums across the United States, culminating at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena for the championship final.[6]
[edit] 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, as well as the two best-placed third teams in each group 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 will advance to the next round will be resolved as follows and in the order indicated:[7]

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.
