CONCACAF World Cup Hex Draw Results

Wednesday night CONCACAF President Jeffrey Webb, CONCACAF General Secretary Enrique Sanz, and FIFA Head of Olympic and World Cup Qualifying Gordon Savic ran a draw for the hexagonal round of World Cup qualifying.  The draw included two pots with six balls each.  The balls were drawn to assign teams to a position in the calendar.  Matches would populate automatically with the assignments.  These matches will begin in February.  Here is how the draw turned out. 

The United States, Mexico, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Panama, and Jamaica were represented by many top ranking officials.  The ceremonies were led by Jurgen Mainka, the CONCACAF Director of Marketing.  After words welcoming all officials and some discussion of how the six teams have advanced hope was the message.

CONCACAF is still looking for its first World Cup title.

Team 6 was drawn first and matched with Costa Rica, which means they will start with the first two matches on the road.

Team 4 was next and matched with the United States.

Position 5 was then assigned to Panama.

Team 3 was attached to Honduras.

Team 2 then went to Jamaica giving Mexico position 1.

This draw means the U.S. Men’s National Team will begin with Honduras away on February 6.  The marquee match ups with Mexico will be March 26 and September 10.  The home match will be the latter.
