KINGSTON, Jamaica -- Following the request of at least three participating Member Associations and the support of several others, the Caribbean Football Union (CFU) Executive Committee announced Wednesday that the start of CFU Caribbean Cup’s final round will be delayed by one day.

As a result, the competition will now be played November 11-18, 2014.

The biennial championship for the region’s national teams, which doubles as a qualifying competition for the CONCACAF Gold Cup, will still be played entirely in Montego Bay, Jamaica.

Group A consists of defending champion Cuba, Curacao, French Guiana and Trinidad & Tobago, and will commence play on November 11, with the second and third matchdays taking place on November 13 and November 15.

Group B, which is comprised of Antigua & Barbuda, Haiti, host Jamaica and Martinique, now kicks off on November 12, continuing play on November 14 and November 16.

The match for third place and final will be contested on November 18 at the Montego Bay Sports Complex.
