The 2011 CONCACAF Gold Cup was the 11th edition of the CONCACAF Gold Cup competition and 21st CONCACAF regional championship overall in CONCACAF's fifty years of existence. The United States was the host nation.

The competition started on June 5, 2011 at the Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, and ended with the final on June 25, 2011 at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California,[2] with Mexico beating the United States 4-2.

This competition was the fifth tournament without guests from other confederations. Mexico won their sixth Gold Cup, and ninth CONCACAF Championship overall. It was the third consecutive Gold Cup final and second consecutive win also.

As winner of the tournament, Mexico qualified for the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup in Brazil as the representative from CONCACAF.[3][4]

Squads

Each team can register a squad of 23 players.

Suspension of Mexican players

On June 9, 2011, the names of five Mexican players were released announcing Christian Bermúdez, Édgar Dueñas, Guillermo Ochoa, Francisco Javier Rodríguez and Sinha, all tested positive for clenbuterol prior to the start of the 2011 Gold Cup. They were withdrawn from the squad a few days after their June 5 Gold Cup starting match and 5-0 win against El Salvador.[6] Mexican officials said they believed the positive tests were caused by eating meat tainted with the drug.[7] CONCACAF General Secretary Chuck Blazer said a meeting of the confederation's national teams committee, which also serves as the organizing committee of the Gold Cup, was to be convened on June 10 to consider the situation, including possibly allowing Mexico to replace the five players. However, the meeting was postponed to allow for more information to be gathered.[8] The Mexican Football Federation said on June 14 that the "B" samples of those five involving players were negative.[9] The CONCACAF Gold Cup Organizing Committee announced on June 19 that Mexico would be allowed to replace the suspended players.[10]

Draw

The teams learned their path to the regional title when CONCACAF announced the groups and match schedule for the 2011 Gold Cup on concacaf.com Tuesday, March 8 at 12 pm ET. The confederation championship ran from June 5 to 25 in 13 different stadiums across the United States, culminating at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena for the championship final.[11]
