Our footballers have been busy this year! After Team TCI U14 Girls claimed silver in the Caribbean Football Union (CFU) Under-14 Girls Challenge Series Tier II final against Aruba, the Under-17 girls are now taking their chances at a win.
The 2021 Concacaf Women’s Under-17 Qualifying (CWU17) tournament, in Bradenton, FL, USA hosts three groups of teams, where the winners of each group will advance to the 2022 Concacaf Women’s U-17 Championship (CWU17).
The groups are as follows:
Group A: Saint Kitts and Nevis, US Virgin Islands and Suriname
Group B: Barbados, Curaçao and Belize
Group C: Honduras, Anguilla, Guyana and Turks and Caicos Islands
So far the Turks and Caicos Islands have competed in one game against Anguilla on October 30, the game resulting in a draw. Hence, today Turks and Caicos has taken on Team Guyana, vying for the top spot.
Unfortunately Team Guyana have conquered, with a 6-0 score against Team TCI, but not without a fight from our girls.

Ultimately, the winner, runner-up, and third place of the 2022 CWU17 will qualify for the 2022 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup.
