CONCACAF Women's U-20 Championship History, Format, Organization, Media Coverage

The CONCACAF Women's U-20 Championship is a biennial association football competition contested by under-20 women’s national teams from North America, Central America, and the Caribbean. The tournament, which was originally a U-19 event, began back in 2002, with USWNT and Mexico emerging as champions of their groups – the inaugural campaign had no final.

The number of contestants has grown over the years and, as a result, the format has evolved as well. Initially, the tournament was an eight-team affair, with the participants being split up into two groups of four. The top two teams would progress to the semi-finals, with the two winners in the penultimate stage moving on to the final and the losers heading into the third-place playoff. In the 2020 edition, the list of contestants was increased to 20. As a result, the groups were also increased to four and a quarter-final stage was introduced.

This competition acts as the qualifiers for the FIFA Women’s U-20 World Cup, with the top three teams from the CONCACAF Women’s U20 Championship – the champions, the runners-up, and the winners of the third-place playoff – qualifying for the finals.
