    GUATEMALA CITY – Central America’s road to the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup will start next month in Guatemala City, Guatemala, the Union of Central American Football (UNCAF) announced Tuesday.

    The tournament will be played entirely at the Estadio Mateo Flores, May 20-24, 2014.

    All seven of the region’s national teams will compete for a pair of berths to the final round of CONCACAF Women’s World Cup Qualifying, which will be played later this year in a yet to be determined country.

    The field was split into two groups as follows:

    GROUP I

    Belize, Guatemala, Honduras, Panama

    GROUP II

    Costa Rica, El Salvador, Nicaragua

    The group winners will progress to the CONCACAF event as well as meet on May 26 for a single place in the 2015 Pan American Games in Toronto.

    Four years ago, Costa Rica and Guatemala advanced out of Central American qualifying to the confederation finals in Cancun, Mexico.
