Concacaf awards Bermuda points from cancelled Montserrat match

Bermuda have been awarded three points after their Concacaf Nations League group B match against Montserrat was cancelled in June.

According to the Concacaf website, which has updated the result of the fixture which was scheduled to be played at the Flora Duffy Stadium, a 3-0 victory to Bermuda has been “decided by the disciplinary committee”.

The points for the win lift Bermuda off the bottom of group B above Montserrat and reignites lingering hopes of securing a Gold Cup play-off spot for finishing second.

Kyle Lightbourne’s side now sit third on four points, six adrift of leaders Haiti, but crucially only two below second-placed Guyana with two matches remaining against those sides in the next international window.

Bermuda play Guyana at home on March 25 and Haiti away three days later.

Despite the apparent awarding of the victory and the three points, the Bermuda Football Association confirmed yesterday that it is yet to receive any official confirmation or correspondence from Concacaf regarding the ruling.

The original cancellation of the fixture on June 10, just four days before the match, came as a shock with the BFA releasing a statement to confirm it had been notified by Concacaf that the match had been cancelled

When contacted to by The Royal Gazette at the time, Concacaf confirmed it had been “informed by the Montserrat FA that its men’s national team were unable to travel to Bermuda for their Concacaf Nations League match”.

However, the organisation was unable to confirm the reason behind its inability to travel stating that the match has, “as per competition regulations, been referred to Concacaf’s Disciplinary Committee”.
