and the French overseas department of French Guiana—are also members.[3] CONCACAF's primary functions are to organize competitions for national teams and clubs, and to conduct World Cup and Women's World Cup qualifying tournaments. CONCACAF
CONCACAF
was founded in its current form on 18 September 1961 in Mexico

confederation. Mexico dominated CONCACAF
CONCACAF
men's competition early on and has since won the most Gold Cups since the beginning of the tournament in its current format. The Mexican national team is the only CONCACAF
CONCACAF
team to win an official FIFA
FIFA
tournament by winning the 1999 FIFA
FIFA
Confederations Cup. They have also reached the Round of 16 for the past 6 World Cups. While the U.S. is the only country outside Europe and South America

quarterfinals and the 2009 Confederations Cup final. Between them, Mexico

The first leader of CONCACAF
CONCACAF
was Costa Rican Ramón Coll Jaumet; he had overseen the merger between the North American Football Confederation (NAFC) and the Confederación Centroamericana y del Caribe de Fútbol (CCCF). In 1969, he was succeeded in the role by Mexican Joaquín Soria Terrazas, who served as president for 21 years. His successor Jack Warner was the CONCACAF
CONCACAF
president from 1990 to 2011, also for 21 years. Warner was suspended as president on 30 May 2011 due to his temporary suspension from football-related activity by FIFA
FIFA
following corruption allegations.[6] Chuck Blazer
Chuck Blazer
was the General Secretary during the same period.[7] On 20 June 2011, Jack Warner resigned from the presidency of CONCACAF, and removed himself from all participation in football, in the wake of the corruption investigation resulting from 10 May 2011 meeting of the Caribbean
Caribbean
Football

Union.[8] The vice-president of CONCACAF, Alfredo Hawit, acted as president until May 2012.[9] In May 2012, Cayman Islands

CONCACAF
Congress in São Paulo
São Paulo
on 10 June 2014. Teams not affiliated to the IOC are not eligible to participate in the Summer Olympics football tournament, as a result, they do not participate in the CONCACAF Men's Pre-Olympic Tournament or the CONCACAF
CONCACAF
Women's Pre-Olympic Tournament. Membership relation[edit] Elections at the CONCACAF
CONCACAF
Congress are mandated with a one-member, one-vote rule. The North American Football Union
North American Football Union
is the smallest association union in the region with only three members, but its nations have strong commercial and marketing support from sponsors and they are the most populous nations in the region. The Caribbean Football Union
Caribbean Football Union
has the ability to outvote NAFU and UNCAF with less than half of its membership. Consequently, there is a fractious relationship between members of CFU, UNCAF
UNCAF
and NAFU.[citation needed] This provoked former Acting-President Alfredo Hawit to lobby for the CONCACAF
CONCACAF
Presidency to be rotated between the three unions in CONCACAF
CONCACAF
in 2011. Trinidad's Jack Warner presided over CONCACAF
CONCACAF
for 21 years, and there was little that non- Caribbean
Caribbean
nations could do to elect an alternative. Under Warner, the CFU members voted together as a unit with Warner acting as a party whip. It happened with such regularity that sports political commentators referred to the CFU votes as the " Caribbean
Caribbean
bloc" vote.[citation needed] Warner rejected the idea in 1993 of merging several smaller nations' national teams into a Pan- Caribbean
Caribbean
team. His reasoning was that the nations were more powerful politically when separate than when together. He commented that "being small is never a liability in this sport".[15] Competitions[edit] The Gold Cup and the Champions League are the two most visible CONCACAF
CONCACAF
tournaments.[14] CONCACAF
CONCACAF
Gold Cup[edit] Main article: CONCACAF
CONCACAF
Gold Cup The CONCACAF Gold Cup
CONCACAF Gold Cup
is the main association football competition of the men's national football teams governed by CONCACAF, held since 1991. The Gold Cup is CONCACAF's flagship competition, and the Gold Cup generates a significant part of CONCACAF's revenue.[16] The Gold Cup determines the regional champion of North America, Central America, and the Caribbean. The Gold Cup is held every two years. Twelve teams compete for the Gold Cup — three from North America, five from Central America, and four from the Caribbean. The Central American teams qualify through the Central American Cup, and the Caribbean
Caribbean
teams qualify through the Caribbean
Caribbean
Cup. The winners of two successive Gold Cups (for example, the 2013 and 2015 editions) face each other in a playoff to determine the CONCACAF entrant to the next Confederations Cup. If the same team has won the Gold Cup on both relevant occasions, there will be no playoff and that team automatically qualifies for the Confederations Cup.[17] CONCACAF
CONCACAF
Nations League[edit] Main article: CONCACAF
CONCACAF
Nations League All men's national teams of member associations are to take part in the Nations League; a competition created in 2017. National teams will be placed into tiers and play matches against teams in the same tier. At the end of each season, several national teams can be promoted to the tier above or relegated to the tier below depending upon their results. CONCACAF
CONCACAF
Champions League[edit] Main article: CONCACAF
CONCACAF
Champions League The CONCACAF
CONCACAF
Champions League, originally known as the CONCACAF Champions' Cup, is an annual continental club association football competition organized by CONCACAF
CONCACAF
since 1962 for the top football clubs in the region. It is the most prestigious international club competition in North American football. The winner of the Champions League qualifies for the FIFA
FIFA
Club World Cup. The knockout tournament spans February through April.[18] Sixteen teams compete in each Champions League; 9 from North America, 6 from Central America, and 1 team from the Caribbean. The North American and Central American teams qualify through their national leagues or other national tournaments, while the Caribbean
Caribbean
team qualifies through the CFU Club Championship. The title has been won by 28 different clubs, 17 of which have won the title more than once. Mexican clubs have accumulated the highest number of victories, with 31 titles. The second most successful league has been Costa Rica's Primera División with six titles in total. The most successful club is Club América

corruption scandal and 2015 FIFA corruption case At the CONCACAF
CONCACAF
Congress in May 2012 in Budapest, Hungary, legal counsel John P. Collins informed the members of CONCACAF
CONCACAF
of several financial irregularities. Collins revealed that Jack Warner, the former CONCACAF
CONCACAF
President, had registered the $22 million 'Dr. João Havelange Centre of Excellence' development in Port-of-Spain
Port-of-Spain
under the name of two companies that Warner owned.[20] In addition, Warner had secured a mortgage against the asset in 2007 which the CONCACAF members were also unaware of; the mortgage was co-signed by Lisle Austin, a former vice-president of CONCACAF.[20] The loan defaulted. Collins also revealed that CONCACAF, despite most of its income coming from the United States, had not paid any tax to the Internal Revenue Service since at least 2007 and had never filed a return in the United States.[21] Although CONCACAF
CONCACAF
is a registered non-profit organization in the Bahamas
Bahamas
and headquartered in Port-of-Spain, Trinidad, they have an administration office in New York, and BDO and CONCACAF
CONCACAF
invited the IRS to investigate potential liabilities. It is thought that CONCACAF may have to pay up to $2 million plus penalties.[citation needed] Chuck Blazer
Chuck Blazer
stated that a full financial audit into CONCACAF
CONCACAF
by New-York based consultancy BDO was delayed due to the actions of Jack Warner and his personal accountant, and the accounts could not be "signed off" as a consequence.[21] In addition, Blazer is to sue CONCACAF
CONCACAF
for unpaid commission of sponsorship and marketing deals which he had made in 2010 during his time as General Secretary.[20] Blazer received a 10% commission on any deal that he made on behalf of CONCACAF.[22] The Bermuda
Bermuda
FA asked members of CONCACAF
CONCACAF
to lobby FIFA
FIFA
to remove Blazer from his position on the FIFA
FIFA
Executive Committee. Blazer suggested that it was less to do with financial irregularities and more for his role in the removal of Jack Warner in the Caribbean Football
Football
Union corruption scandal: "I spent 21 years building the confederation and its competitions and its revenues and I'm the one responsible for its good levels of income . . . I think this is a reflection of those who were angry at me having caused the action against Warner. This is also a reaction by people who have their own agenda."[22] Jack Warner presided over CONCACAF
CONCACAF
for 21 years. Warner was one of the most controversial figures in world football. Warner was suspended as president on 30 May 2011 due to his temporary suspension from football-related activity by FIFA
FIFA
following corruption allegations.[6] A power struggle developed at CONCACAF
CONCACAF
following the allegations against Warner. The allegations against Warner were reported to the FIFA

Ethics Committee by Chuck Blazer, the secretary general of CONCACAF. The acting president of CONCACAF, Lisle Austin, sent Blazer a letter saying he was "terminated as general secretary with immediate effect".[23] Austin described Blazer's actions as "inexcusable and a gross misconduct of duty and judgement" and said the American was no longer fit to hold the post.[24] The executive committee of CONCACAF later issued a statement saying that Austin did not have the authority to fire Blazer, and the decision was unauthorized.[23] On 20 June 2011, Jack Warner resigned from the presidency of CONCACAF, all posts with FIFA, and removed himself from all participation in football, in the wake of the corruption investigation resulting from 10 May 2011 meeting of the Caribbean

World Cup hosting[edit] CONCACAF
CONCACAF
nations have hosted the FIFA
FIFA
World Cup three times. The 1970 FIFA
FIFA
World Cup took place in Mexico, the first World Cup tournament to be staged in North America, and the first held outside Europe and South America. Mexico
Mexico
was chosen as the host nation in 1964 by FIFA's congress ahead of the only other submitted bid from Argentina.[34] The tournament was won by Brazil. The victorious team led by Carlos Alberto, and featuring players such as Pelé, Gérson, Jairzinho, Rivelino, and Tostão, is often cited as the greatest-ever World Cup team.[35][36][37][38] They achieved a perfect record of wins in all six games in the finals.[39] Despite the issues of altitude and high temperature, the finals produced attacking football which created an average goals per game record not since bettered by any subsequent World Cup Finals.[40][41][42] The 1970 Finals attracted a new record television audience for the FIFA
FIFA
World Cup[43] and, for the first time, in colour.[44][45] In 1986, Mexico
Mexico
became the first country to host the FIFA
FIFA
World Cup twice when it stepped in to stage the 1986 FIFA
FIFA
World Cup after the original host selection, Colombia, suffered financial problems.[34] Colombia
Colombia
was originally chosen as hosts by FIFA
FIFA
in June 1974. However, the Colombian authorities eventually declared in November 1982 that they could not afford to host the World Cup because of economic concerns. Mexico
Mexico
was selected on 20 May 1983 as the replacement hosts, beating the bids of Canada
Canada
and the United States, and thereby became the first nation to host two World Cups. This second World Cup in Mexico
Mexico
came 16 years after the first one in 1970. The United States
United States
won the right to host the 1994 FIFA
FIFA
World Cup, defeating bids from Brazil
Brazil
and Morocco.[46] The vote was held in Zurich on 4 July 1988, and only took one round with the United States bid receiving a little over half of the votes by the Exco members.[46] FIFA
FIFA
hoped that by staging the world's most prestigious football tournament there, it would lead to a growth of interest in the sport – one condition FIFA
FIFA
imposed was the creation of a professional football league; Major League Soccer, starting in 1996. The U.S. staged a hugely successful tournament, with average attendance of nearly 69,000 breaking a record that surpassed the 1966 FIFA
FIFA
World Cup average attendance of 51,000 thanks to the large seating capacities the American stadiums provided for the spectators in comparison to the smaller venues of Europe and Latin America. To this day, the total attendance for the final tournament of nearly 3.6 million remains the highest in World Cup history, despite the expansion of the competition to 32 teams at the 1998 World Cup.[47][48] CONCACAF
CONCACAF
is considered a favorite to host the 2026 FIFA
FIFA
World Cup, as no other competing bids have emerged.[49] Women's World Cup results[edit] The following table shows the CONCACAF
