Bermuda await draw for Concacaf Under-20 Championship
Cecoy Robinson, the Bermuda Under-20 coach, is eagerly awaiting the outcome of tomorrow’s draw to determine the island’s pathway to the next Concacaf Under-20 Championship.
Bermuda are among 20 nations set to compete in the 2022 Concacaf Under-20 Championship qualifying tournament in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, from November 5-14.
The teams have been divided into five pots according to their ranking.
Bermuda have been placed in Pot 1 which also boasts Dominican Republic, Curaçao and Nicaragua.
“Basically we are just looking forward and eagerly waiting to see who were drawn up against,” Robinson told The Royal Gazette.
“It’s been a long time coming for a lot of the players that’s been involved and a lot of hard work that’s been going on. So the coaching staff and players are just looking forward to it and just waiting to see what happens.
“It would be good to see and I guess it would give the youngsters a much needed boost through all of this Covid-19 stuff. We are just anticipating and eagerly waiting.”
Puerto Rico, Guadeloupe, Grenada and Guyana have been placed in Pot 2, Dominica, Cayman Islands, St Vincent & the Grenadines and Martinique in Pot 3 and Belize, Barbados, St Martin, and US Virgin Islands in Pot 4.
Pot 5 consists of Sint Maarten, Anguilla, Montserrat, and British Virgin Islands.
The teams will be placed into four groups according to the order in which they are drawn. The draw will be shown on Concacaf’s official app and website, Facebook page and YouTube channel.
Further details concerning November’s qualifiers and the championship stage will be announced after the draw.
Bermuda were eliminated during the qualifying stage of the 2020 Concacaf Under-20 Championship which was initially postponed and ultimately cancelled due to the global coronavirus pandemic.
The United States were the defending champions.
