Beyond earning regional supremacy, the victor of this summer's tournament will at the very least book its place in the playoff to represent CONCACAF at the 2021 FIFA Confederations Cup in Qatar. Finally, Group C has the overwhelming favorites and winners of 3 of the last 4 Gold Cups, Mexico, facing off against El Salvador, Curacao, and 2015 shock finalists Jamaica.

"With the groups now determined, we have a full look at the schedule of Gold Cup matches to be played this July", CONCACAF president Victor Montagliani said. The top two teams from each group advance to the quarterfinals, along with the two of the three third-place finishers. One semifinal will be played in Arlington, Texas on July 22 and the other in Pasadena on July 23.

In what is expected to be two testy encounters, the Jamaicans will lock horns with reigning champions Mexico on July 13 at the Sports Authority Field in Denver, Colorado (USA), before wrapping up the group stage against El Salvador at the Alamodome, in San Antonio, Texas on July 16. The final will be on July 26 at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif. The United States will host the 14th edition of the Gold Cup, with games taking place from coast to coast. Canada meets French Guyana on July 7 at New Jersey in the tournament opener.
