2017 CONCACAF U-17 Championship Format:

The CONCACAF U-17 Championship format features three groups of four teams. The previous tournament featured two groups of six teams.

As host, Panama was seeded at the top of one of the three groups, while Costa Rica and Mexico were also assigned as the remaining two seeds. Mexico earns its seed as the current CONCACAF champion, while Costa Rica’s seed came as the result of being the best-placed CONCACAF team from the last edition of the FIFA U-17 World Cup, excluding the regional champion and host.

The top two teams in each of the three groups will advance to the Classification Stage, which features two groups (D and E) of three teams each. In the Classification Stage, the top two finishers from each group will qualify for the U-17 World Cup to be played from Oct 6-28 in India. Additionally, the first-place teams from Groups D and E will play for the 2017 CONCACAF championship.
