CONCACAF Champions Cup

The CONCACAF Under-17 Championship is a biennial tournament that determines a champion and the Confederation’s qualifiers for the FIFA U-17 World Cup. Throughout its existence, it has provided an introduction to international football for thousands of players, setting the stage for further aspirations in the sport. Launched in 1983, the Under-17 Championship was staged initially as an under-16 competition up until 1991, when FIFA changed the FIFA U-16 World Championship to an under-17 event (eventually becoming known as the FIFA U-17 World Cup in 2007). Though contested 16 times, the CONCACAF Under-17 Championship has crowned a champion on only 10 occasions with Mexico owning a record five titles. It has been played under multiple formats and configurations over the years. The inaugural competition in 1983 saw the United States lift the trophy by outlasting host Trinidad & Tobago 5-3 on penalty kicks after their final ended in a scoreless draw. Due to that success, the Americans were designated to participate in the first FIFA Under-16 World Championship in 1985. As a result, they did not take part in the next CONCACAF tournament two years later, when Mexico and Costa Rica also qualified to join the U.S. in China.
