NEW YORK (June 30, 2017) – Fifty-one players from Major League Soccer are set to participate in the 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup after officially receiving a call up to final 23-man rosters, the most of any professional league worldwide. In total, Major League Soccer will see players representing nine of the 12 participating nations in the tournament, with 18 MLS teams seeing at least one of its players called up.
 
The United States led all nations with 17 MLS players called into action, including five Homegrown Players. Canada ranked second with nine MLS players called onto its national team, six of whom came up through MLS academies. An additional 31 MLS players were named to preliminary 40-man rosters and are eligible to be called as one of six replacement players per team allowed by CONCACAF prior to the quarterfinal round of the tournament.
 
A trio of reigning MLS award winners will participate in the 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup including 2016 MLS Rookie of the Year Jordan Morris (Seattle Sounders FC/United States), 2016 MLS Defender of the Year Matt Hedges (FC Dallas/United States) and 2016 Goalkeeper of the Year Andre Blake (Philadelphia Union/Jamaica).
 
The tournament will visit seven MLS cities and five U.S. cities that have submitted official applications for the League’s next round of expansion. MLS will add four expansion teams in the coming years, growing to 28 clubs. The Gold Cup begins on Friday, July 7 with a doubleheader at Red Bull Arena featuring French Guiana against Canada (7 p.m. ET, FS2/UDN) and Honduras taking on Costa Rica (9 p.m. ET, FS2/UniMas).
