The 2010 Caribbean Championship (also known as Digicel Caribbean Cup 2010 for sponsorship reasons) was the 2010 edition of the Caribbean Championship, an international football championship for national teams affiliated with the Caribbean Football Union (CFU) of the CONCACAF region. The final stage was hosted by Martinique. Martinique were selected as hosts over fellow bidders Guadeloupe and Barbados. The competition was originally scheduled to begin on 18 August with the final match taking place on 28 November.[1] However, at the beginning of August 2010, the CFU released a different schedule that showed the competition being postponed until 2 October.[2] Also, the Bahamas pulled out of the competition, leaving 23 teams. The groups were changed, allowing Cuba and Antigua and Barbuda to get a bye to the second qualifying round at the expense of Guyana and the Netherlands Antilles.

The top four teams qualified for the 2011 CONCACAF Gold Cup.

Participants[edit]

A total of 23 entered into the tournament. Aruba had initially entered but withdrew shortly before the tournament began, dropping the total from the initial 24 entrants. Seven CFU teams – Aruba, Bahamas, Bermuda, French Guiana, Sint Maarten, Turks and Caicos Islands, and United States Virgin Islands – did not enter, meaning two more participants than in the 2008 edition. Martinique and Jamaica were given byes into the tournament proper as hosts and title holders, respectively.[3] The six highest-ranking teams – Grenada, Guadeloupe, Cuba, Haiti, Trinidad and Tobago, and Antigua and Barbuda – based on the results of the 2008 tournament, were given byes into the second qualifying round.[3] All remaining entrants – Anguilla, Barbados, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Dominica, Dominican Republic, Guyana, Montserrat, Netherlands Antilles, Puerto Rico, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint-Martin, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, and Suriname – were drawn into the first qualifying round.
