Five Things to Know About the Concacaf Nations League

Later this year, the U.S. Men’s National Team will take part in the inaugural Concacaf Nations League. Here are five things to know about the new competition:

What Is It?

Similar to the recently launched UEFA Nations League, Concacaf’s version was created to maximize the quality, quantity and frequency of competitive matches for all of the confederation’s 41 Member Associations.

How Teams Qualified

A four-game qualifying tournament for the Concacaf Nations League began last September and just concluded during the March FIFA international window.

While all 41 Member Associations are part of the competition, the qualifying tournament was used to help place teams in their respective leagues for the 2019-20 Concacaf Nations League: League A, League B and League C.

The Format

Here’s a brief rundown of the tournament format:

League A
Number of Teams: 12 teams
Group Format: Four groups of three teams
Qualifiers: Comprised of the six teams that took part in the final round of qualifying for the 2018 FIFA World Cup AND the top six finishers in Nations League Qualifying.
Teams: USA, Bermuda, Canada, Costa Rica, Cuba, Curaçao, Haiti, Honduras, Martinique, Mexico, Panama and Trinidad & Tobago

League B
Number of Teams: 16 teams
Group Format: Four groups of four teams
Qualifiers: Comprised of the teams which finished 7-22 in Nations League qualifying
Teams: Antigua and Barbuda, Aruba, Belize, Dominica, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, French Guiana, Grenada, Guyana, Jamaica, Montserrat, Nicaragua, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines and Suriname

League C 
Number of Teams: 
13 teams
Group Format: Three groups of three teams AND one group of four teams
Qualifiers: Comprised of the teams which finished 23-34 in Nations League qualifying and Guatemala, who was suspended at the beginning of the competition.
Teams: Anguilla, Bahamas, Barbados, Bonaire, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Guadeloupe, Guatemala, Puerto Rico, Saint Martin, Sint Maarten, Turks and Caicos and U.S. Virgin Islands

The Group Phase for each league is a round-robin, home-and-away format which will play out during the course of the September, October and November FIFA international dates in 2019. At the end of the round-robin competition, the League A and B teams that finish last in their groups will be relegated to the lower league, while the group winners in Leagues B and C will be promoted to the higher league for the next edition of the competition.

Additionally, the four group winners from League A will advance to the Knockout Round, where a semifinal and final will be played during the March FIFA international dates to crown the 2019-20 Concacaf Nations League champion.

It’s important to note that the Concacaf Nations League will run separate from the long-established Concacaf Gold Cup, though this year’s CNL qualifying competition did help determine the 2019 Concacaf Gold Cup field, with the top 10 finishers punching their tickets to this summer’s regional championship.

The Draw

The 2019-20 Concacaf Nations League Draw was held on March 27, 2019 at The Chelsea Theater in Las Vegas. The USA was drawn against northern neighbors Canada and Caribbean foe Cuba. See the full League A draw below:

The MNT will face a Canada side that finished second in the 34-team 2019-20 Concacaf Nations League qualifying tournament. The USA holds a 14-8-11 advantage over Les Rouges, and will play its first competitive match on Canadian soil since Nov. 9, 1997, a 3-0 win which clinched the MNT's participation at the 1998 FIFA World Cup. 

The draw also set up a fourth visit for the MNT to Cuba. The USA leads the all-time series by a 10-1-1 mark. 

The Schedule

Concacaf unveiled the full schedule for the 2019-20 Nations League group stage on May 21. Following the home-and-home series between Cuba and Canada during the September window, the USA will begin play with a home match against Cuba on Friday, Oct. 11.

FIFA Approves Change of Association Request for Tyler Boyd

CHICAGO (May 18, 2019) - U.S. Soccer confirmed Saturday that Tyler Boyd has been approved by FIFA for a change of association. Boyd is a dual citizen of New Zealand and the United States.

Because he represented the All Whites in official competition at the youth level, he was required to submit an application for a one-time switch. With his request granted, he can now only represent the United States at the international level.

Born in New Zealand, Boyd spent some of his formative years growing up in Santa Ynez, Calif., before returning to his birth country at age 10. Signed with Portuguese side Vitória Guimarães, the 24-year-old has spent 2019 on loan with Turkish Süper Lig club Ankaragücü where he has registered five goals and four assists across 13 matches. 

He also previously played in friendlies for New Zealand’s senior national team.

BERHALTER: "There is an amazing atmosphere in Cincinnati"

The last time U.S. Men’s National Team head coach Gregg Berhalter managed a game at Nippert Stadium, he came away with a memorable experience – if not a positive result.

Head coach of Columbus Crew SC when the MLS side took on FC Cincinnati in the 2017 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup fourth round, Berhalter’s side were on the wrong end of a 1-0 shutout to the then-USL club, just one of the many upsets the lower division side pulled off on its Cinderella run to that year’s tournament semifinals.

Asked on Thursday what he remembered about the encounter, Berhalter replied, “The first thing about that match is that I’m still mad that we lost it.”

Though Berhalter’s Crew SC were one of the giants taken down by FC Cincy that year, the more than 30,000 in attendance provided a special atmosphere that night and gave the future MNT head coach a view towards what the burgeoning soccer market – now in the midst of its first MLS season – could offer going forward.

“It was one of the better atmospheres I experienced while working in Major League Soccer,” he said. “I’ve been there watching other games as well, and there is just an amazing atmosphere in Cincinnati.”

FC Cincinnati has continued to support the club well this season, averaging more than 27,000 fans leading up to the MNT’s first match in the Queen City when they face Venezeula on June 9 at Nippert Stadium. The signs of strong support should extend to the USMNT as well, with ticket sales for the match surpassing 19,000 as of Thursday, May 16.  

And while hitting up a thirsty soccer market is one part of the MNT’s trip next month, the game also represents the USA’s final tune-up before tackling the 2019 Concacaf Gold Cup.

La Vinotinto has made serious strides recently against the traditional powers in South America, with their U-20 side advancing to the final of the 2017 FIFA World Cup and the senior team earning some impressive results of late.

That progress has Berhalter feeling pretty good about the test on offer for his team before it begins its quest to bring home a seventh Gold Cup title.

“I think it’s going to be a great game,” he said. “Venezuela is a team that had a very successful U-20 group [in 2017] that they’ve been able to push through to the full national team. Their full team is doing well - they just beat Argentina. I think it’s going to be a really difficult final preparation match.”
