The draw for the 2011 Gold Cup is complete and twelve CONCACAF teams now know their opponents and venues.  The wonderfully impressive Dallas Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas will host the opening double header.  Five time champions Mexico be the feature squad playing the nightcap against El Salvador.  Costa Rica and Cuba will play the early match.

Expect a monster crowd in Arlington as the Mexico National Team is hugely popular in North Texas.  Stars such as Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez and Giovani dos Santos are expected to be in the squad that will face El Salvador that evening.

The United States has been drawn into Group C along with Canada, Panama and Guadeloupe.  The Americans open on June 7th against Canada in Detroit, Michigan.  The US will then travel to Tampa, Florida for a Saturday matchup with Panama before finishing with Guadeloupe in Kansas City on June 14th.
