KINGSTON, Jamaica – The Caribbean Football Union (CFU) Caribbean Cup resumes Wednesday with second round action as 12 national teams vie for six available final-round places.

Trinidad & Tobago, Haiti and Guadeloupe will host Groups 7, 8 and 9, respectively.

The top two finishes in each group will join defending champion Cuba and host Jamaica in the finals, which will take place in Montego Bay, November 10-17, 2014.

The top four teams from the Caribbean Cup will receive automatic berths to the 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup, while the fifth-place side will face Honduras in a playoff for one last spot.  As an added incentive, the champion will also qualify for the 2016 Centennial Cup America.
