April 5, 2020 | 0 Comments

Concacaf announced the suspension of the 2020 Concacaf Nations League Finals, Road to Gold Cup Qualifiers, and Flow Caribbean Club Championship due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

A spokesperson said, “At Concacaf our thoughts are with all the communities affected by the spread of Covid-19 at this difficult time. As we continue to assess our competitions scheduled to be played in the coming months, the welfare of everyone involved in football across our region remains our first priority.

“Given the ongoing public health situation, and following consultation with FIFA regarding the international football calendar, we have made the decision to suspend the Concacaf Nations League Finals, which was scheduled for June 4th – 7th 2020 in the Houston and Dallas areas.

“The event, which includes the Costa Rica, Honduras, Mexico, and USA men’s national teams, will be rescheduled to take place at a later date in venues to be determined. This will be confirmed following further discussions with FIFA regarding the remaining international windows in the football calendar, and will obviously be subject to public health authorities deeming it safe for professional sports events to resume.

“Additionally, following the same considerations and discussions with FIFA, we have made the decision to suspend the Road to Gold Cup qualification matches scheduled in the June international window and the Flow Caribbean Club Championship scheduled for May. We will discuss with stakeholders format and scheduling options for these matches and communicate our plans in due course.

“We are grateful to fans across the region for their continued support for these events. In the case of the Concacaf Nations League Finals, fans who purchased tickets via Ticketmaster, SeatGeek or AXS will receive refunds automatically. Fans who purchased tickets directly at the stadium box office or through third party vendors should contact those organizations directly for more details regarding the refund process.”
