The 2012 CONCACAF Women's Olympic Qualifying Tournament was an association football competition used to determine the two participants who would compete at the 2012 Summer Olympics.[1] It was held at BC Place in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, from January 19–29, 2012.[2]

Qualification[edit]

Thirteen teams, eight from the Caribbean and five from Central America, competed to join automatic qualifiers Canada, Mexico and the United States in the eight-team final tournament.

Caribbean qualification took place as two groups of four teams that competed from 29 June to 9 July. Cuba and Haiti qualified from group A with seven points each, and were joined by the Dominican Republic from group B who won their group with nine points.

UNCAF's two slots were determined by a five-team group that competed from 30 September to 8 October. Costa Rica won the group without dropping any points, and were joined by Guatemala who only lost to Costa Rica.[3]
