CONCACAF (the Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football) is the continent-wide governing body for football in North America, Central America and the Caribbeanmarker. Three South American entities, the independent nations of Guyanamarker and Surinamemarker, and the Frenchmarker department of French Guianamarker, are also members.

CONCACAF was founded in its current form on 18 December 1961 in Mexico City, Mexico, by the fusion of the NAFC and the CCCF, and it became one of the six continental confederations affiliated with FIFAmarker. Its primary administrative functions are to organize competitions for national teams and clubs, and to conduct World Cup qualifying tournaments. In recent years, the region has been dominated by the United States and Mexico, who have each qualified for the last 6 World Cup tournaments and have won all but one of the editions of the CONCACAF Gold Cup.

World Cup Qualifiers

Only ten CONCACAF members have ever reached the FIFA World Cup since its inception in 1930, six of them accomplishing the feat only once. No team from the region has ever reached the final at the World Cup, but the United States has reached the semifinal in a FIFA World Cup in the first edition in 1930, where they were awarded third place, and they also reached the quarterfinal round in 2002. Mexico, and Cuba have also reached the quarterfinal round. Cuba advanced to the quarterfinals in their only appearance, the 1938 FIFA World Cup. Mexico did so both times they hosted the World Cup, 1970 and 1986.

  2. There was no Group Stage in the 1934 and 1938 World Cup; the whole tournament was a knockout competition. The United States was eliminated in the first round of the 16-team tournament in 1934.
  3. There was no Knockout Round in the 1930 World Cup, but rather a second Group Stage that served as the final round. The United States and Mexico were eliminated after the first Group Stage.
