CONCACAF (pronounced /kɑːnkəkæf/, kahn-kə-kaf), (the Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football) is the continental governing body for football (soccer) in North America, Central America and the Caribbean. Three South American entities, the independent nations of Guyana and Suriname, and the French department of French Guiana, are also members.

CONCACAF was founded in its current form on 18 December 1961 in Mexico City, Mexico, by the fusion of the NAFC and the CCCF, and it became one of the six continental confederations affiliated with FIFA. Its primary administrative functions are to organize competitions for national teams and clubs, and to conduct World Cup qualifying tournaments. In recent years, the region has been dominated by the United States and Mexico, who have each qualified for the last 6 World Cup tournaments and have won all but one of the editions of the CONCACAF Gold Cup.

World Cup Qualifiers

Only ten CONCACAF members have ever reached the FIFA World Cup since its inception in 1930, six of them accomplishing the feat only once. No team from the region has ever reached the final at the World Cup, but the United States has reached the semifinal in a FIFA World Cup in the first edition in 1930, where they were awarded third place, and they also reached the quarterfinal round in 2002. Mexico, and Cuba have also reached the quarterfinal round. Cuba advanced to the quarterfinals in their only appearance, the 1938 FIFA World Cup. Mexico did so both times they hosted the World Cup, 1970 and 1986.

The following table shows the CONCACAF representatives at each edition of the World Cup, sorted by number of appearances:

CONCACAF (pronounced /ˈkɒn.kəkæf/, KON-kə-kaf) (the Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football) is the continental governing body for Association football in North America, Central America and the Caribbean. Three South American entities, the independent nations of Guyana and Suriname, and the French department of French Guiana, are also members.

CONCACAF was founded in its current form on 18 September 1961 in Mexico City, Mexico by the fusion of the NAFC and the CCCF, and it became one of the six continental confederations affiliated with FIFA. Its primary administrative functions are to organize competitions for national teams and clubs, and to conduct World Cup qualifying tournaments. In recent years, men's football in the region has been dominated by the United States and Mexico, who have won all but one of the editions of the CONCACAF Gold Cup. The United States has been very successful in the women's game, being the only CONCACAF member to win any of the three major worldwide competitions in women's football—the World Cup (twice) and the Olympics (three times).
