2011 CONCACAF U-20 Championship

The CONCACAF Under-20 Championship was expanded to 12 teams beginning in 2011. The tournament determined the four CONCACAF teams that participated at the 2011 FIFA U-20 World Cup to be held in Colombia. In addition, the top three finishers from Central America or the Caribbean, in addition to hosts Mexico, qualified to participate at the 2011 Pan American Games. The Executive Committee approved that for men's U-20 championships all three North American teams again qualified automatically for the finals. Central America received four berths, and the Caribbean received five.

The new allocations give Central America one more berth than it had in 2009 and the Caribbean three more.[1] On 1 September 2010 CONCACAF announced Guatemala as host of the championship, played from 3–17 April.[2]

The championship was scheduled to be held a week later but was moved ahead one week due to a scheduling conflict.[3]

Status of Guadeloupe

Guadeloupe is a member of CONCACAF but not a member of FIFA. As such, they are eligible to compete for CONCACAF Championships but are not eligible to qualify for the FIFA U-20 World Cup. If they had reached the semifinals of this tournament, the 4th team from CONCACAF to qualify for the 2011 FIFA U-20 World Cup would have been the losing quarterfinalist who gained the most points in the group stage. If two or more teams had been tied, then a drawing of lots would have been be used.[4][5]
