CONCACAF League of Nations

The need to “maximize the quality, quantity and frequency of competitive matches” has  pushed the CONCACAF region to create an UEFA Nations League style regular match up tournament for the teams in the North American, Central American and Caribbean regions. The idea was proposed late last year.

As reported the match ups and precise format will be unveiled soon. The dates of the matches will have to be the official FIFA international dates therefore the different countries will meet in the inaugural version of the tournament in early September 2018. There are 41 member teams and they will be placed in three leagues which like the European version will features relegation and promotion. It will also feature a chance to qualify for the Gold Cup, the region’s national team competition.
