DRV PNK Stadium, Fort Lauderdale, FL (Prelims host 2021. 18,000 capacity)

DRV PNK Stadium (pronounced as Drive Pink Stadium) is the home of Inter Miami CF Stadium in Fort Lauderdale and built on the site of the former Lockhart Stadium which was the home of the now disbanded MLS team Fort Lauderdale Strikers.

The 18,000 soccer-specific stadium is the interim home of MLS franchise Inter Miami CF which is now in its third season as well as its USL League One reserve team Fort Lauderdale CF. Inter Miami will move to Miami on completion of its Freedom Park Stadium.

For the Gold Cup 2021 the DRV PNK Stadium hosted all nine of the knockout games that decided the final three spots for the Gold Cup group stages. The games featured 12 nations over three match days and completed the week before the Gold Cup kicked off its group stage.

The Preliminary Qualifying Round was initially introduced as a fix to catch up with a qualification schedule that had been interrupted by the covid pandemic. It proved so popular with competing nations that Concacaf has now made it a regular feature of its qualifying for major tournament finals and the DRV PNK Stadium will again host the 12-nation preliminary qualifiers.

The stadium will also host one game in the Group stage:  x vs y on Group z
