CONCACAF Gold Cup History 

Football in North America, Central America and the Caribbean was originally divided into smaller regional divisions. The two main organisations were the Confederación Centroamericana y del Caribe de Fútbol (CCCF) founded in 1938 (Central America and majority of the Caribbean) and the North American Football Confederation (NAFC) founded in 1946 (consisting of the North America including United States, Mexico, Canada, and Cuba). 

There were two separate competitions held by each federation, the CCCF Championship and the NAFC Championship. The CCCF held 10 championships between 1941 and 1961 with Costa Rica the dominant nation after winning seven titles. The NAFC Championship was not as prominent, just four championships in 1947, 1949, 1990 and 1991.

CONCACAF was founded in 1961 after a merger between the NAFC and CCCF with the first CONCACAF tournament held in 1963 in El Salvador. The competition was named the CONCACAF Campeonato de Naciones and was held every two years from 1963 to 1973. 

The tournament had always had the same format of six teams playing a single round-robin competition, and in 1973 the winners earned CONCACAF's spot in the 1974 FIFA World Cup. Haiti recorded an upset win in Port-au-Prince but lost every match in West Germany with two goals scored and 14 conceded.

The 1977 Campeonato de Naciones was held in Mexico and the 1981 Campeonato de Naciones was held in Tegucigalpa, Honduras. Mexico and Honduras each won as host nations to earn a spot in the FIFA World Cup. Canada and Costa Rica were named champions in 1985 and 1989 to qualify for the World Cup.

CONCACAF ended the CONCACAF Championship in 1990 and created the CONCACAF Gold Cup in 1991 with United States selected as hosts. The USA has hosted or co-hosted every edition of the competition since.

The CONCACAF Gold Cup included its first guest team in 1996 with defending FIFA World Cup Champions Brazil invited to participate. Further nations were invited to participate as guests in six Gold Cup tournaments from 1996 to 2005. 

The 2000 CONCACAF Gold Cup saw the competition increased to twelve teams and in 2007 the tournament was contested exclusively by nations within CONCACAF.

The winner of the CONCACAF Gold Cup has often served as a qualifier for the FIFA Confederations Cup. The winners of the 2013 and 2015 Gold Cups met in the CONCACAF Cup to determine which nation would qualify for the 2017 Confederations Cup.

Following the eradication of the FIFA Confederations Cup, the winner of the Gold Cup will not qualify for a major tournament for the first time since 2009. The 2019 CONCACAF Gold Cup saw the Championship expanded from 12 to 16 teams.
