The CONCACAF U-17 Championship is an international association football event in the North America, Central America and the Caribbean region, and is the qualification tournament for the FIFA U-17 World Cup.

Results[edit]

In 2009 the tournament returned to a championship format in which all four semifinalists qualify to the FIFA U-17 World Cup.[1] The 2009 tournament was cut short due to the swine flu outbreak in Mexico.[2] No championship round was played as a result of the cancellation, and the tournament ended with four teams qualifying to the 2009 FIFA U-17 World Cup without determining a regional champion. Until 1988 the tournament was held as a Under 16 edition.[3]
