[DATEBOOK] The Rose Bowl will be the site of the 2011 Gold Cup, which marks the 20th anniversary of the Concacaf championship for national teams.

The Gold Cup, which will start June 5, will again consist of 12 Concacaf teams.

Mexico, the defending champion, has won five titles. The USA has won four times, including the inaugural tournament, and Canada won in 2000.

The 2011 competition takes on added significance as the winner will qualify for the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup as Concacaf’s representative.

The USA won the 2000 final at the Rose Bowl, the site of the 1994 World Cup final.

The Pasadena, Calif., stadium was used for preliminary round games at the 1991 tournament. The final, won by the USA in a shootout over Honduras, was played at the Los Angeles Coliseum.

“We are very excited to return to the Rose Bowl to crown our region’s champion. The Gold Cup has grown dramatically over the past 20 years and the Rose Bowl remains a fantastic venue to celebrate our final,” CONCACAF General Secretary Chuck Blazer said.
