The two matchups – Panama vs. Cuba and Trinidad & Tobago vs. Haiti – will be played as a double-header. The winner of each match will advance to the Copa America Centenario 2016.
CONCACAF will have six representatives in the 2016 Copa America Centenario, hosted in the United States and marking the first time the South American championship has been played outside that continent.
CONCACAF Gold Cup champion Mexico, 2013 Gold Cup champion and host United States, reigning Central American Cup champion Costa Rica and 2014 Caribbean Cup Champion Jamaica have already secured their places to represent CONCACAF in the June 2016 event.
