CONCACAF Gold Cup Soccer Charters

The CONCACAF Gold Cup soccer tournament is being played in cities all over the US. Does anyone know which charter airlines/aircraft are being used to move the teams around the country? If I recall correctly, Delta was a sponsor back in 2017 but I do not know if they actually flew any of the charters.
