The Gold Cup 2021 will bring us the most exciting event of the year in North America, Central America, and Caribbean soccer. Throughout ten different cities and eleven stadiums, the tournament will be held in the United States.

In Concacaf's 60th anniversary, the region's greatest competition will be at stake for the 16th time since it was reformatted in 1991. Since then, only a handful of teams were able to get their hands on this coveted trophy.

But what country has claimed the title the most? With the Gold Cup 2021 kickoff looming around, let's take a look at the national team that lifted the most Gold Cup trophies so far.

The national team with the most Gold Cup titles

Mexico are the Concacaf Gold Cup winningest side, as they have claimed the trophy eight times. El Tricolor will be also defending their title this year after being crowned in the last edition in 2019 when they defeated the USMNT 1-0 in the grand final.

The inaugural Gold Cup in 1991, however, saw the US national team getting its hands on the trophy. Later, it has managed to do it on five more occasions. Mexico then won three straight titles before Canada claimed their first and lone Gold Cup in 2000.

From then on, however, the USMNT and Mexico have been dominant in the tournament, as no other team has been able to win this prize. Will we see a new champion this time, or is one of these two running away with the trophy again?
