All That Glitters Is Gold: CONCACAF Selects Host Stadiums

CONCACAF has unveiled the stadium lineup for the ’05 Gold Cup. The event takes place July 6-24, with the championship held July 24 at Giants Stadium. Following is a complete list of venues (CONCACAF):

The Home Depot Center Carson, CA
Giants Stadium East Rutherford, NJ
Gillette Stadium Foxboro, MA
Reliant Stadium Houston
L.A. Coliseum L.A.
Orange Bowl Miami
Qwest Field Seattle

THEY HAVE LIFT-OFF: In Houston, Glenn Davis writes the city’s selection “caps a remarkable 20 months of international soccer for Houston and Reliant Stadium,” which hosted several games involving national teams from the U.S. and Mexico as well as top pro clubs during that period (HOUSTON CHRONICLE, 1/27). In Boston, Frank Dell’Apa notes that the event has “never been conducted in more than three cities” (BOSTON GLOBE, 1/27).
