CONCACAF Women's Gold Cup


CONCACAF Women's Gold Cup

The CONCACAF Women's Gold Cup, the CONCACAF (Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football) championship competition, takes place every other year. It was created in 2000, partially in response to the need for more Women's World Cup qualifying competitions.

The CONCACAF Women's Gold Cup replaced the CONCACAF's Women's Championship, which ran in 1991, 1993, 1994 and 1998. Except for the 1993 and 2000 competitions, which featured invited teams from other confederations, all tournaments were World Cup qualifiers.

History

Inaugural Years

The first Women's Gold Cup Qualifying Tournament (qualifying for the Women's World Cup) was hosted by the U.S. in 2000. Six member WNTs participated: Canada, the U.S., Costa Rica, Guatemala, Mexico, Trinidad & Tobago, as well as two invited teams, Brazil and China.

Because of this, the 2002 Women's Gold Cup held in Canada, was restricted to qualifying CONCACAF teams.
