Matches & groups fixed for CONCACAF tourny

| 01/08/2013

(CNS): Cayman will be taking centre stage later this month when hundreds of players and officials pour onto the islands for CONCACAF’s under 15 tournament. The local team will play all of their qualifying matches at the Truman Bodden Stadium with 7-30pm kick offs when the football competition starts on Tuesday 13 August. Cayman is drawn in group A and will need to beat out Aruba, Bahamas, St. Maarten, US Virgin Islands and Bermuda to secure the group’s top spot and qualify for the semi-finals and play the winner of group C in which both Honduras and Trinidad & Tobago are drawn.

The tournament has been billed as a major coup for Cayman as along with some 800 players and officials the competition is also expected to attract hundreds more family, friends and fans who will be staying in Cayman for over two weeks.

The local football association is also still seeking volunteers from all walks of life to help out in what will be a major logistical operation for CIFA which is hosted the federation’s regional development tournament.

Cayman’s first match is on Tuesday 13 August at 7-30pm against St Marteen at the Truman Bodden Stadium in George Town. The first round matches are all free to enter but tickets for the semis and finals are $10 and $15 respectively.

    Maybe change the headline here? Saying the matches are fixed could be misunderstood! No match-fixing here!

    CNS,    Your article states that the winner of Group A,Cayman's group will play the winner of Group C,Trinidad's group.However the schedule shows that Semi-final 1,will be between the winners of Group A ,(Cayman's group), and Group B.(Jamaica's group).

      CNS, please don't use the words "Match: and "fixing" in the same sentence…people are a little sensitive on that right now…

      So what you are saying is that the winner of Jamaica's group plays someone other than Cayman?

    Why are all the footballing nations in CONCACAF not in this tournament – no Mexico, no USA, no Costa Rica, no Panama.  Is this a Div 2 affair?
