CONCACAF Women's World Cup Qualifiers moved to United States

+

The CONCACAF qualifiers for the 2015 Women's World Cup in Canada have been moved from Mexico to the United States, the confederation announced today. With an expanded field from 16 to 24, 3.5 spots from CONCACAF will now be up for grabs this summer and fall, with Canada getting an automatic qualifying spot as host nation and the United States a front-runner for qualification, expect some surprises to come through the qualification process. Venues have not been announced, but it is highly likely that Portland will put in a bid. Having hosted the Women's World Cup in both 1999 and 2003, and several US Soccer and CONCACAF events, especially on the women's side and the runaway success that has been the Portland Thorns, Providence Park should earn some serious consideration. No date has been announced as to when a decision will be made.
