    Thirteen U.S. cities, from Miami to Seattle, will host Gold Cup games this summer, including Arlington.

    The Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Football (CONCACAF) announced the sites Wednesday for the July 7-28 event.

    The tournament returns to five venues in Arlington, Texas; Chicago; Pasadena, Calif.; Harrison, N.J.; and Seattle. Cowboys Stadium hosted the event in 2009 and 2011.

    Eight of the stadiums have never taken part in the tournament: Atlanta; Baltimore; Denver; Hartford, Conn.; Houston; Miami; Portland, Ore.; and Salt Lake City.

    To date, eleven of the twelve participating national teams have qualified for this year’s tournament. In alphabetical order: Belize, Canada, Costa Rica, Cuba, El Salvador, Haiti, Honduras, Martinique, Mexico, Trinidad & Tobago and the United States.

    The final spot will be decided on Friday when Guatemala plays Panama in the 2013 UNCAF Copa Centroamericana in Costa Rica.
