“We had been anxiously waiting confirmation for the venue and we are happy to announce that we’ve received confirmation from Concacaf. Now the team is more excited than ever to continue preparations,” said the Football Federation of Belize (FFB) on Facebook on Wednesday.
The qualifying tournament for the 2022 Concacaf Women’s Under-20 Championship will take place at the Ergilio Hato Stadium and FFK Stadium in Curacao from September 13-17, 2021.
The FFB said the Director of Competitions shared a congratulatory greeting with the thirteen (13) participating Member Associations on behalf of President Montagliani.
The Belize team is in Group D along with Grenada and Suriname. Our team plays against Grenada at the FFK Stadium on Monday, September 13 and against Suriname on Wednesday, September 15 (see schedule).
The matches will be played in a round robin format, each team playing one match against each of the other teams in the same group.
The 2022 CWU20 will include the participation of 29 Member Associations split into three rounds: Qualifiers, Group Stage and Knockout Stage.
