The 2011 FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup qualifiers for CONCACAF was a continental beach soccer tournament, which took place between December 1 and December 5, 2010, in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, for the third time in a row. Organizers had hoped to extend the number of teams participating from six to eight after seeing newcomers Bahamas compete in the previous competition, and this indeed materialized with Jamaica returning after four years and Guatemala joining the tournament. This meant that the competition took place between two groups of four in a round-robin format, with the top two teams in each group qualifying to the knockout stage.[1]

Only the two finalists would be the nations to progress to play in the 2011 FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup the following year, these nations being hosts Mexico, and El Salvador, seeing last years qualifying nation Costa Rica, lose out on a spot at the world cup.[2] All matches took place at Unidad Deportiva Municipal Agustín Flores Contreras in Puerto Vallarta.[3]

Participating teams[edit]

Group stage[edit]

The draw to determine the groupings and schedule for the eight teams was held in Puerto Vallarta on November 24, 2010.[4] For the draw, Mexico and the United States drew the top seeds in each group based on their current Beach Soccer Worldwide CONCACAF rankings, with Mexico being placed in Group A and the United States being placed in Group B. The remaining six teams were drawn from three pots (A, B and C), again based on their Beach Soccer Worldwide CONCACAF ranking from 2007 to 2009.

All match times are correct to that of local time in Puerto Vallarta time, being Central Standard Time, (UTC -6).
