PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- The United States will open the defense of its CONCACAF Gold Cup title on July 7 against Honduras or French Guiana at Frisco, Texas.
The Americans play Haiti three days later at Foxborough, Massachusetts, and close Group A on July 13 versus Panama at Kansas City, Kansas.
If the Americans win their group, they would play the third-place team from Group B or C on July 18 at Baltimore. The Confederation of North and Central American and Caribbean Football Association Football said Thursday the semifinals will be in Atlanta on July 22 and the final at Philadelphia on July 26.
If the U.S. wins the title, it would qualify for the 2017 Confederations Cup in Russia. If another nation wins, it would meet the Americans in a playoff for the Confederations Cup berth.
The semifinal losers will meet on July 25 at Chester, Pennsylvania, in the Gold Cup's first third-place match since 2003.
