BERMUDA | BER
Bermuda is a country on the rise on the international football scene, looking to sustain momentum from its breakthrough moment when it burst on the scene at the 2019 Concacaf Gold Cup, followed by brave showings in its 2019-20 Concacaf Nations League campaign.
In its inaugural Gold Cup, Bermuda narrowly missed out on the knockout stage, falling to Costa Rica by a goal, but closing out its campaign with a victory against Nicaragua. After a strong showing in Concacaf Nations League qualification, Bermuda landed in Concacaf Nations League A.
While it ultimately slid to League B, it put a scare into both Panama and Mexico, veterans of the 2018 FIFA World Cup. The Gombey Warriors beat Panama in Panama City with a Nahki Wells double and had Mexico on the ropes in Toluca after an early goal from Dante Leverock, before El Tri found a first-half equalizer and a stoppage-time winner.
The new logo for the Bermuda Football Association, a member of Concacaf since 1967, brings together three shapes and colors into one, a reminder that the game is for everyone.
The Bermuda women’s national team has more than held its own, finishing in fourth place in 2018 Concacaf Women’s Championship qualification --one place away from advancing to the final tournament.There is little doubt that still serves as motivation for a squad that will hope to make it at least one step further this time around in the Concacaf W Championship.
