Miami, FL – WEBWIRE

Concacaf has announced the 2023 Road to W Gold Cup schedule. The 2024 W Gold Cup qualifying tournament will take place during the FIFA Women’s International Match Windows of September, October, and November 2023 and will include the participation of 35 Concacaf women’s senior national teams divided into three leagues.

The W Gold Cup is the region’s premier competition for women’s senior national teams and is a key part of the “Concacaf W” women’s football strategy the Confederation launched in 2019. The inaugural competition will be played between February 17 – March 10, 2024, in the United States.

The 2023 Road to W Gold Cup will start after the conclusion of the FIFA Women’s World Cup, which takes place this summer in Australia and New Zealand and includes a record six competing Concacaf women’s national teams.

The 35 Concacaf Member Associations participating, excluding the two who will compete in the 2024 Paris Summer Olympic Games Women’s Football Tournament (USA and Canada or Jamaica), were split into three leagues according to their Concacaf Women’s Ranking as of March 2023, and sub-divided into groups. The official draw took place on May 17 and the groups are as follows:

League A (nine top-ranked teams divided into three groups of three)

Group A: Mexico, Trinidad and Tobago, and Puerto Rico.
Group B: Canada or Jamaica, Panama, and Guatemala.
Group C: Costa Rica, Haiti, and Saint Kitts and Nevis.

League B (next 12 best-ranked teams divided into three groups of four teams)

Group A: Guyana, Antigua and Barbuda, Suriname, and Dominica.
Group B: El Salvador, Nicaragua, Honduras, and Martinique.
Group C: Dominican Republic, Bermuda, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, and Barbados.

League C (14 remaining teams divided into two groups of four teams and two groups of three teams)

Group A: Belize, Aruba, Turks and Caicos Islands, and Bonaire.
Group B: Cuba, Saint Lucia, Guadeloupe, and Sint Maarten.
Group C: US Virgin Islands, Grenada, and Bahamas.
Group D: Curacao, Cayman Islands, and Anguilla.

After 90 group stage matches, which include home and away play within each League and group, the top finishers in each of the League A groups (three teams) will qualify for the 2024 W Gold Cup Group Stage. Furthermore, the second-place finishers in each of the League A groups (three teams) and the first-place finishers in each of the League B groups (three teams) will advance to the 2024 W Gold Cup Prelims.
