Precursors of the current Gold Cup tournament; first ten editions under auspices of the C.C.C.F., since 1963 under Concacaf. The last proper tournament was held in 1971; afterwards, the winners of the Concacaf World Cup Qualifying section were considered champions. This mainly came about because of lack of interest from Mexico. The tournament has now been revitalised as Gold Cup.
C.C.C.F. stands for Confederación Centroamericana y del Caribe de Fútbol. It was founded in 1938 and the precursor of the CONCACAF, that was formed when CCCF merged with the NAFC (North American Football Confederation) in 1961.
The North American Football Confederation also organized championships in 1947 and 1949, which were revived in 1990 and 1991 before the introduction of the Gold Cup.
