    KINGSTON, Jamaica – Caribbean qualifying for the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup opens Friday as 11 of the region’s 19 entrants enter into the process of securing berths in the 2014 CONCACAF Women’s Championship.

    Those places will be earned through the inaugural Caribbean Football Union (CFU) Women’s Caribbean Cup.  Each of the five first-round winners and the two teams with the best runner-up records will advance to the Caribbean final round, where they will join host Trinidad & Tobago for an eight-team tournament, August 19-26.

    The pair of sides that ultimately vie for the Caribbean title -- as well as the winner of the match for third place -- will advance to the CONCACAF event, which is scheduled to be played in the United States.

    The top three teams to emerge from the Confederation competition will qualify for the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Canada.  The fourth-place team will contest a playoff with a South American rival with another World Cup ticket at stake.

    Antigua, Puerto Rico and Turks & Caicos will each host one of five first-round groups, May 23-27, while Haiti (May 30-June 3) and the Dominican Republic (June 18-22) will welcome the remaining quartets.

    Four years ago, Guyana, Haiti and Trinidad & Tobago represented the Caribbean at the CONCACAF finals in Cancun, Mexico.
