Due to the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the soccer calendar and continued concerns over international travel, FIFA recently announced the cancellation of the FIFA Under-17 and U-20 Men’s World Cups, scheduled to take place in Peru and Indonesia in 2021, respectively.

Given FIFA’s decision, the continued uncertainty regarding the impact of COVID-19 in North and Central American and the Caribbean and concerns regarding youth teams traveling in this environment, Concacaf Monday said that it had come to the “difficult decision” to cancel the 2020 Concacaf U-17 qualifiers and Championship, and the 2020 Concacaf U-20 Championship.
