The Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football CONCACAF confirmed www.islandstats.com story earlier that the 2018 CONCACAF Women’s Under-17 Championship — which was suspended on April “due to security concerns” at the venue in Nicaragua — will resume play on June 6th.
IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida, USA will host the remaining matches.
“All participating Member Associations that still have an opportunity to qualify for the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup Uruguay 2018 – Haiti and Mexico from Group A and Bermuda, Canada, Costa Rica and United States from Group B – will dispute the remaining group stage matches from June 6th – 8th,” CONCACAF said.
“The group winners, plus the second-place finishers will advance to the semifinals to be played on June 10. The final and third place match of the competition will take place on Tuesday, June 12th.
“Originally scheduled to be played April 19th – 29th, at the Estadio Nacional, in Managua, Nicaragua, the Women’s Youth Championship was postponed after three match days, due to force majeure. CONCACAF announced the suspension of the remaining games in Nicaragua to guarantee the safety of the delegations, all participants and fans.
“In the previous edition of the CONCACAF Under-17 Women’s Championship played in Grenada in 2016, the United States won its third straight championship at this level, with a 2-1 win over Mexico in the final.”
