On the eve of Bermuda's historic first appearance at the Concacaf Gold Cup, The Royal Gazette caught up with fans and familiar faces from the Bermuda sporting scene, to send out a special message to the men's national team.

Bermuda qualified for the Gold Cup for the first time after finishing fifth in the Nations League qualifiers and have been pitted in group B along with Costa Rica, Haiti and Nicaragua.

Kyle Lightbourne's team will face Haiti in their tournament opener at the Estadio Nacional in San José, Costa Rica, on Sunday before taking on Costa Rica, who competed at the 2018 World Cup in Russia, at the Toyota Stadium in Frisco, Texas, on June 20 and Nicaragua at the Red Bull Arena in Harrison, New Jersey, on June 24.

So as the team embark on this memorable journey, we say to the fans, wear your pink and blue with pride and get behind the boys as they aim to upset the odds and make their mark. And to the men's national team, the message is simple ... GOOD LUCK BERMUDA!
