Draw[edit]

The draw for the final tournament took place on December 15 in Montego Bay, Jamaica, dividing the 12 sides into four, three-team groups.[2]

Due to a decision of the CONCACAF Youth Championships Committee, Pot 1 was reconfigured from the original announcement. Honduras, which had qualified for each of the previous two World Cups, will replace Canada in Pot 1, which also will include the United States, host Jamaica and Costa Rica.

Canada was moved to Pot 2 with Central American sides El Salvador, Guatemala and Panama.

Venues[edit]

The tournament was hosted in two host cities.[3] Trelawny was dropped after an inspection by CONCACAF four days before the tournament was due to begin, because there was no grass.[4]

Winners[edit]

 2011 CONCACAF U-17 Championship 

United States
First title

The U.S. has won the CONCACAF championship twice at this level, in 1983 and 1992,
but because those were U-16 events, the U.S. has technically never won the CONCACAF U-17 Championship.
When the qualifying tournament was held as two groups in separate venues, the U.S. won its group three times (2001, 2003, 2005).
