January 15, 2020 | 0 Comments

Following changes to the 2020 Concacaf Women’s Under-20 Championship, Bermuda and Barbados will occupy the positions vacated by Guyana and Saint Kitts and Nevis for the Round of 16.

The organisation said, “Following confirmation from FIFA that Costa Rica and Panama will co-host the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup in August of 2020, and that Concacaf has been awarded one additional slot [four in total], the Confederation announced changes to its World Cup Qualifying tournament, to be hosted in the Dominican Republic between February 22 and March 8, 2020.

“The Concacaf Council has determined that Costa Rica and Panama, as host countries of the World Cup, will automatically qualify to the World Cup and will no longer participate in the 2020 Concacaf Women’s Under-20 Championship. The two remaining slots in the World Cup will be determined via the 2020 Concacaf Women’s Under-20 Championship.

“For the Round of 16, Bermuda [third-place finisher in qualifying Group A] and Barbados [third-place finisher in qualifying group B] will occupy the positions vacated by Guyana and Saint Kitts and Nevis. The round of 16 pairing will be played as follows:

  • Match #25: 1C vs Saint Lucia
  • Match #26: 1E vs Bermuda
  • Match #27: 2C vs 3E
  • Match #28: 2E vs 3C
  • Match #29: 1D vs Grenada
  • Match #30: 1F vs Barbados
  • Match #31: 2D vs 3F
  • Match #32: 2F vs 3D

“All knockout round matches [round of 16, quarterfinal, semifinal and final] will be played in a single match elimination format, with the finalists qualifying to the FIFA Women’s U-20 World Cup 2020.
