CNL Finals to be hosted at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas

Concacaf has announced that the 2022-23 Concacaf National League (CNL) Finals will be held at the Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada for the second consecutive year. 

CNL semi-finals, third place play-off, and final matches will take place at the home of NFL franchise the Las Vegas Raiders, with all fixtures set take place on June 15-18 this year. 

The second edition of the CNL will be played amongst the four League A group winners which will be determined in the forthcoming matchdays five and six during football’s latest international break from domestic action. 

The United States won the inaugural trophy last season, but currently trail El Salvador in Group D of League A. 

Concacaf President and FIFA Vice President, Victor Montagliani, commented: “The city of Las Vegas and Allegiant Stadium will be tremendous hosts of the 2022/23 Concacaf Nations League Finals. 

“We all enjoyed an outstanding Gold Cup Final at the same venue in 2021, and I have no doubt the quality of the teams combined with the world-class facility will draw fans from across our region.”

“I am looking forward with great anticipation to the Finals of the second edition of this wonderful competition.”

Having hosted the CNL finals last year, the Allegiant Stadium has become a landmark outdoor venue in the US since it opened in July 2020. 

The Las Vegas stadium will host Super Bowl LVIII next year after proving its credentials in many high-profile fixtures between the US Men’s National Soccer Team and Mexico. 

“We’re delighted to have Concacaf return to Allegiant Stadium this June with Nations League Finals,” added Allegiant Stadium General Manager, Chris Wright. 

“The swell of energy these teams and their fans bring to our facility and the entire city is incomparable, and we look forward to continuing to bring global sporting events like these to Las Vegas alongside our partners at the LVCVA.”
