The tournament finals took place in the United States of America between 19 November and 27 November 2006.[2] The USA and Canada received byes into the tournament after contesting the final of the 2002 Gold Cup, while four other spots were determined through regional qualification.

Haiti were unable to participate in group B, as they were denied entry to the hosting country Aruba, and thus a play-off between the winners of group B, Suriname, and Haiti was arranged. Haiti won the play-off, but Suriname qualified as best runners-up owing to goal difference, along with Bermuda.
