Rules of Competition for CONCACAF Olympic Qualifying
With the start of CONCACAF Men’s Olympic Qualifying just hours away, we thought it would be good to catch you up on the rules of competition as established by FIFA. This is a FIFA event, even though it is run by CONCACAF.
- If two teams are tied on points at the end of the group phase for either first or second place, the following criteria will be used to determine which team advances:
- Goal Differential
- Goals Scored
- If teams are tied in all these categories, a playoff match will be played to determine which team advances (date and time TBD)
- If three teams are tied at the end of the group phase for either first or second place, the same criteria will be used as it applies the matches amongst the three tied teams
