We are the Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football (Concacaf). Concacaf is one of FIFA’s six continental confederations, servicing 41 Member Associations, from Canada in the north to Guyana, Suriname and French Guiana in the south.
Concacaf means football first. Our members are united by a shared vision: Love For Our Game, as well as a unique mission, to develop, promote and manage football throughout the region with integrity, transparency and passion in order to inspire participation in the game.
Through offices located in Miami (USA), Guatemala City (Guatemala), and Kingston (Jamaica), Concacaf provides leadership for a network of unified competitions and development activities that unites this diverse region in football, with the goals of actively promoting universal access to our sport, and raising the quality of football across the Confederation.
