82 MLS players named to preliminary rosters for CONCACAF Gold Cup

Gold Cup DL for announcement

CONCACAF revealed the preliminary 40-man rosters for each of the 12 teams participating in the 2017 Gold Cup on Wednesday and MLS is well-represented.

Eighty-two players representing all 22 MLS clubs earned preliminary call-ups from nine different countries for the tournament.

The US lead the way with 32 MLS players on their 40-man roster, while 17 MLS players were named to Canada’s early squad and Costa Rica and Jamaica both called 10 MLSers to their preliminary rosters. Mexico also named one MLS player to their preliminary squad, calling up Houston's Erick "Cubo" Torres while leaving off LA's Giovani dos Santos, who will be with the team for most of June for World Cup qualifiers and the FIFA Confederations Cup. 

Toronto FC lead all MLS teams with seven players named to Gold Cup preliminary rosters, while the Seattle Sounders, Vancouver Whitecaps and New York City FC each had six players named to preliminary squads.

The preliminary rosters will serve as the basis for the final 23-man Gold Cup roster for each participating country. The final rosters must be selected by Friday, June 23.

As in past years, teams that qualify for the quarterfinals of the Gold Cup will be allowed to change their 23-player roster following the group stage by replacing up to six players with players from their 40-man preliminary roster.
