At the Intercontinental Real San Salvador, CONCACAF President Jeffrey Webb opened the proceedings that determined the groupings and match schedule for the tournament, which kicks off on March 28.

“This event in El Salvador signifies a new era for CONCACAF as we prepare to host the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup for the first time, in the Bahamas in 2017,” said President Webb. “CONCACAF beach soccer teams have demonstrated their outstanding abilities on the pitch, competing at the highest levels in this discipline. I convey my best wishes to all teams competing in the qualifiers, and challenge them to set their sights not only on the regional championship, but also on bringing the Beach Soccer World Cup home to CONCACAF this summer.”

Tuesday’s draw sorted the sixteen participating countries into four groups of four teams each. Group A is set to feature host El Salvador, along with Jamaica, Puerto Rico and Belize. Group B contains Mexico, Trinidad & Tobago, Guadeloupe and the Turks and Caicos Islands. Group C features the defending champions USA, along with the Bahamas, Barbados and Antigua & Barbuda.
