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 22nd - March 8th, 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.
Bermuda will play their Round of 16 match on Saturday February 29th at 1:00pm against the team that finishes on top of Group E that features Canada, Jamaica, Guatemala and El Salvador.
