    KINGSTON, Jamaica – In a statement released Sunday, the Caribbean Football Union announced that the 2016/17 Caribbean Cup, third-round match scheduled for October 5 between host Jamaica and Suriname has been postponed due to safety concerns regarding Hurricane Matthew.

    The match was to be played at the Anthony Spaulding Sports Complex in Kingston.

    The Category 4 hurricane -- forecasted to make landfall Monday -- is expected to bring damaging winds and torrential rain to the island.

    A new date for the match has not been determined.

    The Caribbean Cup is a biennial competition that crowns the region’s champion and qualifies at least four teams to the CONCACAF Gold Cup. In 2015, for the first-ever time, the Caribbean’s quartet of representatives – Cuba, Haiti Jamaica and Trinidad & Tobago -- advanced past the Gold Cup’s group stage.
