From espn tv

i seen on espn deportes earlier that this format of WCQ could take place for 2014:

32 national teams (2 NT on the top 12 in the region rankings along with 2 NT from 13-32 in the region rankings for each group.....all games will be home-and-away)

8 groups of 4 (top 2 NT advance) not so complicated
example:
USA
Haiti
Bahamas
Dominica

then: 4 groups of 4 (top 2 NT advance) a bit complicated..

then: 2 goups of 4 (top team advance to the 2014 WC) more complicated..
the best 3rd place team also advances to the WC which leaves the 4th place team for a playoff match against south america....

31.05.2010
Honduran Radio HRN confirms this scenario (well, sort of):

The final round will be an octagonal, not 2 groups of 4.

However in March of 2011, following news that CONCACAF would not receive four spots in the 2014 World Cup, officials within CONCACAF indicated that the above format will be revised.[3] Several days later, officials within CONCACAF announced the qualifying format they would present to FIFA. The proposed format consists of 4 stages.

1. Preliminary Round. Teams ranked 26–35 would play-off to reduce the number of entrants to 30.
2. First round. 6 groups of 4 teams. This round would include the 5 qualifiers from the preliminary round plus teams ranked 7–25. The top team in each group would advance to the next stage.
3. Semifinal Round. 3 groups of 4. Teams ranked 1–6 would face off against the 6 group winners from the previous round. The top two in each group would advance.
4. Final Round. The top two teams in each group from the semifinal round compete in one group of 6. The top three teams would advance to the world cup, while the 4th place team would advance to an intercontinental playoff.

The North, Central America and Caribbean Zone will contest play-off matches in June 2011 in order to reduce the number of teams included in the Preliminary Draw for the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™ in Rio de Janeiro on 30 July 2011.

The region’s ten lowest ranked teams according to March’s FIFA/Coca-Cola World Ranking were paired against each other to produce a series of five play-off matches which will be played on a two-legged, home and away basis.

Montserrat-Belize
Anguilla-Dominican Republic
US Virgin Islands-British Virgin Islands
Aruba-St. Lucia
Bahamas-Turks and Caicos Islands

The winners of these fixtures will join the remaining 25 higher-ranked teams from the region in the Preliminary Draw.

The first leg will be played on Friday 3 June, with the return leg scheduled for Tuesday 7 June.

The teams taking part in this extra preliminary round of fixtures and their rank in the region according to March’s FIFA/Coca-Cola World Ranking are as follows:

26. Belize
27. Dominican Republic
28. British Virgin Islands
29. St. Lucia
30. Turks and Caicos Islands
31. Bahamas
32. Aruba
33. US Virgin Islands
34. Anguilla
35. Montserrat

Very interesting to see Montserrat play their first match against a non-Caribbean country. I think Belize will be far too strong for them though.

Apart from Bhutan...

I think Belize is too strong for Montserrat. They probably win twice, without losing goal.

Bahamas-Turks&Caicos - this match could be the most interesting, as teams are equel. I predict Bahamas will qualify after two tied matches.

St.Lucia-Aruba - St.Lucia should qualify. I predict big win at home, and one-goal victory or draw at Aruba.

Virgin Islands Derby's - I think result is open. Americans can beat British, after what British show at Carribean Cup's qualifications.

Anguilla-Dominican Rep - I think stronger is Dominicana, but I think Anguilla have chance to beat them.

In percantage:
95-05 Belize-Montserrat
70-30 St.Lucia-Aruba
60-40 Dominican-Anguilla
55-45 Bahamas-Turks and Caicos
50-50 BVI-USVI

Will all teams really be able to play at home? Certainly wasn't the case last time around.


I doubt Montserrat will be able to play at home. All the others have FIFA pitches (I think). Anguilla recently got a new stadium, so they can now play home matches.

I think this is the usual format for international football competitions. The point of being seeded in the first place is to have an advantage.

Belize FA are suspended. The return leg has been postponed but no later than 10th of July. Belize will be excluded if the ban is not lifted by then.

I think they need to worry about playing Central American teams. They've already played against Caribbean teams like Antigua in the past, and the likes of Antigua and Puerto Rico are not really any better than Belize, so perhaps a 6-0 or 7-0 defeat in these matches (at the most) can be expected. I believe Panama would be able to score more than 10 against Montserrat.

Can anyone tell me what the problem the Belizean authorities have to provide security and police forces for the game?
