2019–20 CONCACAF Nations League

The CONCACAF Nations League is an international football competition, to be contested by the senior men's national teams of the member associations of CONCACAF, the regional governing body of North America, Central America, and the Caribbean. The tournament would take place on dates that are currently allocated for international friendlies on the FIFA International Match Calendar. The inaugural tournament is expected to begin in September 2019. A one-off qualifying tournament took place from September 2018 to March 2019.[1]

History

The tournament was announced in November 2017.[2] It will be divided into three leagues with a champion to be crowned at the end of each edition.[3] The tournament will also determine which national teams qualify for the CONCACAF Gold Cup and will feature promotion and relegation between the leagues. The format proposals were first formally investigated at the XXXII CONCACAF Ordinary Congress in Oranjestad, Aruba on 8 April 2017.[4][5]

CONCACAF President Victor Montagliani stated that the purpose of the competition is to have a regular schedule of international fixtures for CONCACAF's national teams noting that some teams play fewer than 10 games in a four-year period and needed more competitive games to assist the sport's development in those nations.[6][7]
