Concacaf confirms October schedule for 2023 Road to W Gold Cup Group Stage matches

  • 28 matches will be played across the region during the FIFA Women’s match window of October 2023.
  • Teams are competing to qualify for next year’s inaugural Concacaf W Gold Cup.
  • Where to watch: all matches are available for fans to follow and enjoy on the Confederation’s TV partner networks. 

Concacaf has confirmed the schedule for the 2023 Road to W Gold Cup Group Stage matches taking place during the October FIFA Women’s Match Window.

This new and exciting competition, which began in September and includes the participation of 34 Concacaf Member Associations, is a crucial part of the “Concacaf W” women’s football strategy the Confederation launched in 2019 and serves as the qualifier for the 2024 W Gold Cup. 

The September window of the Road to W Gold Cup produced many exciting matches. A total of 122 goals were scored, with several outstanding individual performances, including hat tricks by Costa Rican duo Priscila Chinchilla and Melissa Herrera, Barbados’ Rianna Cyrus, and Carlia Johnson of Anguilla, amongst others. 

The 28 matches also delivered some unforgettable moments, highlighting a day that Bonaire Football will never forget, as its senior women’s national team played its first-ever Concacaf match. Other great moments included Maria Sanchez’ golazo at Estadio Azteca to start Mexico’s 2-1 comeback victory over Puerto Rico, Guatemala’s coming to life after suffering a 3-0 loss to Panama at home, and Bermuda’s and Suriname’s perfect starts. 

The match results and group standings for Leagues A, B, and C are available here.

For the 2023 Road to W Gold Cup, the 34 participating Concacaf Member Associations, which does not include the two competing in the 2024 Paris Summer Olympic Games Women’s Football Tournament (USA and Canada), were split into three Leagues (A, B, and C) according to their Concacaf Women’s Ranking as of March 2023 and sub-divided into groups at the official draw on May 17.

Following home and away play within each League and group, during the 2023 FIFA Women’s Match Windows of September, October, and November, the top finishers in each League A group (three teams) will qualify for the 2024 W Gold Cup Group Stage. Furthermore, the second-place finishers in each League A group (three teams) and the first-place finishers in each League B group (three teams) will advance to the 2024 W Gold Cup Prelims.

The inaugural edition of the Concacaf W Gold Cup will be played between February 17 – March 10, 2024, in the United States. Thus far, six nations have secured their participation in the competition’s Group Stage. This includes the United States (2022 Concacaf W Championship winners), Canada (2023 Concacaf Olympic play-off winners), and the four CONMEBOL guests Argentina, Paraguay, Brazil, and Colombia (four top finishers of the 2022 CONMEBOL Women’s Copa America).
