    With the field set, the eight teams will head to Guatemala City for the January 20-30 tourney at the 17,000-seat Estadio Cementos Progreso. After the last two tournaments were held in Mexico, this will be the first time since the event began as an under-19 championship in 2002 that it will be held in Central America.

    Canada, Costa Rica, Cuba and Guatemala were drawn into Group A with the United States, Mexico, Trinidad and Jamaica placed in Group B.

    For the Women's Under-17 Championship, the defending champion United States will face host Costa Rica, Haiti and either the Dominican Republic or Cayman Islands in Group B. Group A will be comprised of Canada, Mexico, Jamaica and a second team from Central America.

    Costa Rica will stage the second U-17 championship March 9-20 in Estadio Saprissa and Estadio Alejandro Morera Soto in the San Jose area.

    The Dominican Republic and Cayman Islands must face each other in a two-leg playoff for the last of three berths from the Caribbean, set for December 5 and December 12. The remaining Central American side will be decided among Panama, Nicaragua and El Salvador starting Tuesday night and finishing Saturday in Panama.

    Both draws were conducted Monday by Deputy General Secretary Ted Howard during the CONCACAF Executive Committee meeting in New York.

    The full schedules for both tournaments are expected to be announced next month.
