The most successful side in the competition’s history are Trinidad and Tobago – they’ve lifted the trophy on no fewer than eight occasions. The draw has seen them kept separate from the second most successful sides Jamaica, though only Trinidad go into the tournament as one of the favourites.
The other side that are considered favourites are Haiti. They played Trinidad in last year’s Gold Cup and emerged as winners, but go into the competition as second favourites.
The group stage lasts from 11th – 16th November, with the final being held on November 18th.
