The regional governing body has announced the full schedule for the CONCACAF Women’s Championship, CWC. 

The summer competition, which will serve as the region’s final round of qualifying for the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand and as a qualifier to the Paris 2024 Summer Olympics, is scheduled to be played in Monterrey, Mexico, from July 4-18. 

This revamped CWC is a key part of the Confederation’s new women’s senior national team ecosystem taking place from 2021 through 2024. 

Eight teams are slated to participate in the tournament, including USA and Canada. 

The reigning FIFA Women’s World Cup Champions and the 2020 Tokyo Olympics Gold Medal winners qualified by virtue of being the top two ranked teams in Concacaf.

They have been joined by hosts Mexico, Costa Rica, Jamaica, Panama, Haiti, and Trinidad and Tobago. 

Those six teams secured their tickets to the 2022 CWC thanks to first-place finishes in their respective groups during the 2022 Concacaf Women’s Qualifying. 

The group stage of the 2022 CWC will kick off on July 4 and will run through July 11. 

At the end of round robin play, the top two teams from each group will move on to the semifinals and in doing so, qualify directly to the World Cup. 

Meanwhile, the third placed teams in each group will qualify for a 2023 Intercontinental Playoff.
