The Gold Cup schedule and complete group assignments will be announced this spring when the tournament's 16-team field is finalized.

Led by newly appointed head coach Gregg Berhalter, the U.S. MNT enter 2019 as reigning Gold Cup champions and boast a 6-0-1 record in Kansas City all-time. That mark includes four wins and a draw at Children's Mercy Park, which will host Gold Cup matches for the third time following 2011 and 2015.

The U.S. MNT will compete in the Concacaf region's continental championship as the seeded team in Group D. Mexico (Group A), Costa Rica (Group B) and Honduras (Group C) are also seeded participants, while the remaining 12 nations from across North America, Central America and the Caribbean will learn their group placements after the conclusion of qualifying in March. The United States, six-time Gold Cup winners, lifted the 2017 title with the help of Sporting Kansas City duo Matt Besler and Graham Zusi.

World-class Children's Mercy Park is one of 15 venues across 13 U.S. cities that will host the 2019 Gold Cup. Select group stage matches will also take place in San Jose, Costa Rica, and a Caribbean city yet to be announced, marking the first time in tournament history that games will be played outside of the U.S., Canada and Mexico.

The Gold Cup serves as the headline competition for the U.S. MNT in 2019. The 15th edition of the competition will run from June 5 to July 7, with the final to be held at Soldier Field in Chicago.
