Jamaica have been drawn in Group “G” for the 2023 CONCACAF Under 17 Men's Championship set to take place from February 11-26 in Guatemala. The young Jamaicans will face off with Costa Rica, Cuba and Guadeloupe in the group.

The groups were decided at the official draw for the championship on Thursday where a total four groups were completed. Group “E’ will feature Mexico, Panama, Guatemala and Curacao.

Group “F’ will include USA, Canada, Trinidad and Tobago and Barbados, while Group “H” will see Honduras, Haiti, El Salvador and Suriname doing battle.

The top three nations in each group will advance to the knockout stage, joining the four 2022 CONCACAF U-17 men's qualifying group winners Bermuda, Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, and Puerto Rico.

The four-round knockout stage, the round of 16, the quarter-finals, semi-finals and the final will be played in a single match elimination format.

The four semi-finalists will qualify for the FIFA U-17 World Cup Peru 2023 with matches divided across two venues.

The competition's match schedule will be announced at a later date. Jamaica have previously qualified for two FIFA Under 17 World Cups, the 1999 edition in New Zealand and the 2011 edition in Mexico.
