On Tuesday, November 5th, CONCACAF finally announced officially that the United States would be hosting the 2020 Concacaf Women’s Olympic Qualifying Tournament, and that the tournament is scheduled for January 28 to February 9, 2020.  CONCACAF also announced that the group draw for the tournament will be held live on Thursday November 7th, at 2:30 p.m. ET.

Here’s the rough schedule:

  • Round-Robin Group Matches:  January 28th – February 4th, 2020
  • Semifinals: Friday, February 7th
