Soccer (or football, as the Europeans call it) will come to the Rose Bowl this summer. If you’re a fan, you can see the semi-final match of the CONCACAF Gold Cup with some exciting rivalries and game day action.
The Gold Cup is One of North America’s Biggest Soccer Tourneys
The Gold Cup only takes place every two years. It’s a continent-wide tournament that includes North America, Central America, and the Caribbean.
The tournament takes places in 13 cities across the U.S., including Dallas, Denver, Cleveland, Nashville, Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia, and Tampa Bay. The Rose Bowl has the honor of being a chosen venue – it will host a Knockout Round on July 23.
The game on the 23rd will be a nail-biter with high stakes. See the winner of quarter final game #3 versus the winner of quarter final #4 in a semi-final, knockout game. This match-up will determine who will head to the final in Santa Clara, CA at Levi’s Stadium.
The team who wins on the 23rd will battle it out on that final field to see who will get to raise the trophy in victory, plus earn North American bragging rights.
This tournament is a huge draw for fans and soccer lovers. Not only do hordes of enthusiasts descend on the stadium – millions of people tune in at home, as the game is broadcast live on TV.
This should be an exciting event and a great reason to visit the L.A. area. If you’re planning on attending this huge soccer match, stay with us at Los Angeles Marriott Burbank Airport Hotel.
