The inaugural Concacaf W Gold Cup features a six-team Preliminary Round and a 12-team group stage, culminating in a three-round Knockout Stage. The tournament’s Final on Sunday, March 10, at Snapdragon Stadium in San Diego, California, will see Concacaf’s premier women’s national team crowned, marking the end of a cycle of elite women’s football in the region that also encompassed the 2022 Concacaf W Qualifiers and the 2022 Concacaf W Championship.
