Draw[edit]

Twenty five nations were involved in the draw, which took place on 16 January 2016, 21:00 AST (UTC−4), at the Jolly Beach Resort & Spa resort in St. John's, Antigua and Barbuda.[1] Four teams were given a bye due to their involvement in the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualification – CONCACAF Fourth Round. The draw was conducted by Sonia Bien-Aime, Kirsy Rijo Charles Kullman, Chet Green and Lance Whittaker. The CFU used their own rankings to determine which teams would be given seeds based on their previous performances in the competition.[2][3]

Match schedule[edit]

Round Date[4]
First round 22–29 March 2016
Second round 1–7 June 2016
Third round 5–11 October 2016
Fifth place play-off 4–8 January 2017
Notes
  • The second round was originally scheduled for 15–21 May 2016 which is not on the FIFA Calendar.
  • The fifth place play-off was originally scheduled for 9–15 November 2016. However, three third round matches were postponed to 9–13 November 2016 due to Hurricane Matthew-related reasons.[5] The fifth place play-off was rescheduled to be 4–8 January 2017, and also played in a single venue in Trinidad and Tobago instead of each team hosting one match.[6]

Format[edit]

In each three-team group, each team plays one home match against one opponent, and an away match against another opponent. If any team withdraws, the remaining two teams play each other, with one home match and one away match.[7]

Should the score remain level after regular playing time, extra time will be played and should the score still be level after extra time has been played, a penalty shoot-out will take place to determine the match winners.[8] This rule was introduced to reduce the chance of a team's fate being decided by a drawing of lots.

Tiebreakers[edit]

The teams are ranked according to points (3 points for a win in regulation, extra time or penalties, 0 points for a loss). If tied on points, tiebreakers are applied in the following order:[7]

  1. Goal difference;
  2. Goals scored;
  3. Away goals scored;
  4. Drawing of lots.
