USA to play 2013 Gold Cup Matches In Portland, Salt Lake City and Hartford

Drew Hallowell

The U.S. will play their Gold Cup group stage matches in Portland, Salt Lake City and Hartford, leading up to the final in Chicago.

The United States will finally make their return to Portland, Oregon, opening their 2013 Gold Cup campaign at JELD-WEN Field on July 9 against Belize. It will be the Americans' first match in Portland in over a decade.

Five days later, the U.S. will continue the group stage in Salt Lake City, Utah, where they will take on Cuba at Rio Tinto Stadium about a month after the stadium hosts a crucial U.S. World Cup qualifier. They will wrap up the stage against Costa Rica on July 16 at Rentschler Field in Hartford, Connecticut, where they have not played since hosting a friendly there before leaving for South Africa and the 2010 World Cup.

If all goes according to plan and they finish either first or second in Group C, the U.S. will then head to Baltimore's M&T Bank Stadium for the quarterfinals. The semifinals are at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas, which will host both semifinals in a doubleheader and will likely be packed with Mexican fans.

The final will be held on July 28 at Soldier Field in Chicago, which last hosted the final in 2007. That just happened to be the last time the U.S. won the Gold Cup, overturning a one-goal deficit to Mexico on a Landon Donovan penalty and then a Benny Feilhaber wonderstrike volley that stunned El Tri.
