CONCACAF Under 15 Postponed

According to a press release from CONCACAF a decision was made by the CONCACAF Executive Committee to postpone the 2015 CONCACAF Under-15 Boy’s Championship until further notice.

The Confederation stated that it regrets the decision but will continue to focus on its core mission of delivering outstanding soccer events. In the short term, efforts will be dedicated in full to the successful delivery of the upcoming CONCACAF Gold Cup 2015, in addition to other Championships which also qualify CONCACAF teams to worldwide-level tournaments, such as the Men’s Olympic Qualifying Championship and the Under-20 Women’s Championship, to be played as scheduled later in 2015.

CONCACAF is committed to restoring a full slate of complementary youth development tournaments in the shortest possible time. This includes the objective to re-schedule the Under-15 Boys’ Championship, at the soonest opportunity.

This year’s Under -15 Boy’s Championship would have seen a team from Brazil, England and the Oceania Football Confederation’s Vanuatu appearing as guest teams that would have joined with the other teams from the CONCACAF region to bring the total to thirty-seven teams for participation in the second-ever edition of the CONCACAF Under-15competition. This intercontinental event was scheduled to be staged in the Cayman Islands in August.
