The new Concacaf W Qualifiers are scheduled to take place during the FIFA Women’s Match Windows of November 2021 and April 2022 and will serve as the preliminary round of the 2022 Concacaf W Championship.
The 30 Concacaf Member Associations participating, all ranked 3 and below in the FIFA Women’s Ranking as of July 2021, will be divided into six groups of five.
After group stage play, where each nation will play two matches at home and two matches away, the top finisher in each of the groups will advance to the Concacaf W Championship, joining the top two ranked Concacaf nations (USA and Canada) who receive a bye straight to the W Championship.
The official draw for the 2021 Concacaf W Qualifiers will take place on Saturday, August 21 at 3:00 pm ET, from Miami, FL. Fans will be able to follow the event live on Concacaf GO via the Confederation’s Official App and Website, Facebook page, and YouTube channel (subject to territory restrictions).
