Despite postponements to two more competitions due to the Covid-19 outbreak, the governing body for football in the region, CONCACAF, remains optimistic of a July start to the Gold Cup next year. In a statement on Friday, CONCACAF announced the postponement of rounds one and two of the Gold Cup qualifiers which were originally slated for this month. Jamaica secured qualification to the 2021 Gold Cup after winning their group in League “B” of the Nations League last year. The other event that has been postponed is the Nations League finals. The finals which comprised Mexico, Costa Rica, Honduras and USA, was slated for June 4-7 in Texas. CONCACAF is hoping to reschedule the finals for a date later in 2020. The 2022 CONCACAF World Cup qualifiers are still expected to kick off on August 31.
