Final round (ends March 2022)

The top five teams based on FIFA rankings automatically begin their World Cup qualifying campaign in the third and final octagonal round: Mexico (11), United States (22), Costa Rica (46), Jamaica (48) and Honduras (62). Joining them will be the winners of the second-round pairings: El Salvador, Canada and Panama. 

The third round of the CONCACAF qualifiers began Thursday, Sept. 2 and will end on Wednesday, March 30, 2022. Each team gets one home game and one away game against all seven opponents. After the 14 matchdays, the top three teams in the standings will punch their tickets to the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. The fourth-place team will advance to the intercontinental playoff where it will either be paired against a team from AFC (fourth-round playoff winner), CONMEBOL (fifth place) or OFC (second-round winner). 

To recap, here’s the gist:

  • Eight nations in one group playing home and away round robin matches (14 matches)
  • Qualifiers played between September 2021-March 2022
  • The top three teams qualify for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar 
  • Fourth-placed team advances to the inter-confederation playoffs
  • FIFA World Cup will be hosted by Qatar (November-December 2022)
