Saint Lucia quits CONCACAF qualifiers

Saint Lucia has pulled out of the CONCACAF Caribbean Women’s Under-20 Qualifiers to be held at the National Stadium, National Sports Centre in Bermuda.

Saint Lucia’s late withdrawal has reduced group B from four teams to three, with host nation Bermuda now facing Curaçao in the opening match on Wednesday night at 8pm, according to reports.

Bermuda will play Jamaica in their second and final group match on Sunday. Jamaica face Curaçao on Friday.

Group matches are also being played in Haiti at the Stade Sylvio Cator and at the Dominican Republic’s Estadio Juan Felix Sanchez Stadium on the same dates, with the three group winners joining host nation St Kitts & Nevis in the finals from November 22 to 26.

In group A, Haiti will host Anguilla, Cuba and Dominica, while Dominican Republic will play in group C against Antigua, Puerto Rico and Bonaire.

    Why couldn’t they let the girls get some exposure man? How do we expect them to move forward? It would be really disappointing if it was some bawbawl that cause that.

    It’s a shame. No explanation for the withdrawal. It is shameful because this is one of the sports that could have registered St Lucia on the world map of football. I guess adequate preparations were not made or probably there were no funds to support our participation. I’m sure if it were some jumping up, bacanal rendezvous, St Lucia will be fully funded and represented. It is time we start putting our monies where it belongs. Shame on the SLFA..

      The person who publish the information should answer not Cooper. If the slfa has not issue any information why should they have any thing to say.

    The problem with us in st lucia is that the association always waiting for a month before an big tournament to start training smh especially the females. We hardly have any competitions through out the year while the male footballers play many at once! Not like we not interested in playing smh always complaining about not having money for providing the females with the basic needs to train smh well tbh female football will never got anywhere in st lucia if that continues smh
