Jamaica will face Costa Rica, Suriname, and a qualifier from the preliminary rounds in Group C of the 2021 Concacaf Gold Cup which is set to take place from July 10 to August 1, 2021.

The draw for the tournament was held moments ago in Miami, Florida.

The Reggae Boyz qualified for their 12th Gold Cup tournament having won their Concacaf Nations League group back in November 2019. They have enjoyed recent deep runs in the tournament, making back-to-back finals in 2015 and 2017, and advancing to the semifinals in 2019.

Thirteen of the 16 teams have already been decided, including Qatar, who are entering the tournament as guests. The remaining three teams will be determined from the preliminary rounds which will take from June 2 to 6, a week before the group stage.
