We know that we are in a fortunate position to have fans back in stadiums, and we are thrilled with such a fast sell-out as we can now look forward to a great crowd enjoying the competition’s championship match. The huge demand is a testament to Las Vegas being a first-class destination, Allegiant Stadium being a spectacular venue and of course the commitment of fans who love the game and passionately follow the Gold Cup,” added Moggio.
