The 2009 CONCACAF U17 Championship is the football championship tournament for under-17 in the CONCACAF region (North America, Central America and the Caribbean), and was formatted to determine the four CONCACAF representatives to advance to the 2009 FIFA U-17 World Cup in Nigeria. The 8-team tournament was originally scheduled to be played from April 21 to May 2 and hosted by Mexico at the Estadio Caliente in Tijuana. However, the tournament was cancelled on April 27 due to the swine flu outbreak in Mexico.[1] At the time that the tournament was cancelled the group stage had already been played, and the four teams who could qualify to the U-17 World Cup[2][3] – Costa Rica, Honduras, Mexico, and the United States – had already done so.[1]
