If all goes to hell, then, CONCACAF stands to lose quite a bit of money.
A Gold Cup final featuring Mexico would draw at least 80,000 fans to the Rose Bowl. It could draw upwards of 90,000, but I'd say 80,000 is a fair estimate.
If Mexico loses to Honduras on Wednesday, the most I could see attending the match would be 40,000, but that's a stretch. A more reasonable estimate is about 30,000. There are lots of Honduras supporters in the area and since it's on a Saturday night, 30,000 could come out for the match. Probably a more realistic estimate though is about 25,000.
How much of a difference would a Mexico loss in the semifinals mean then? Do the math.
With Mexico: 80,000 to 90,000.
Without Mexico: 30,000 to 40,000.
That's a difference of around 50,000.
Ticket prices range from $40-100.
So multiply 40 by 50,000 and you get a lot of lost money for CONCACAF.
I guess the moral of the story is, if you are tired of CONCACAF's shenanigans (and don't pull for Mexico normally) then go for Honduras. Hit CONCACAF where it hurts, right?
