T&T’s men’s and Under-20 footballers train at the Ato Boldon Stadium in balmain, Couva. The team trains on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Sataurdays.
So­ca War­riors coach An­gus Eve and his play­ers will avoid fac­ing Haiti and Guatemala among their match­es for pro­mo­tion back to Pool A when the 2022/23 Con­ca­caf Na­tions League Pool B group stage qual­i­fiers pre­sent­ed by Qatar Air­ways (CNL) kicks off in June.
The com­pe­ti­tion’s group stage match­es, fea­tur­ing the men’s na­tion­al teams of all 41 Con­ca­caf mem­ber as­so­ci­a­tions are sched­uled to take place dur­ing the FI­FA Match Win­dows of June 2022 and March 2023.
The Con­ca­caf Na­tions League Fi­nals pre­sent­ed by Qatar Air­ways (CNLF), be­tween the four League A group win­ners, will be played in June 2023.
Con­ca­caf launched the re­gion’s men’s Na­tions League in March 2018, to en­sure all Mem­ber As­so­ci­a­tions have the op­por­tu­ni­ty to com­pete in more of­fi­cial match­es, dri­ve the de­vel­op­ment of the game and pro­vide a com­pelling tour­na­ment for fans in all parts of the Con­fed­er­a­tion.
Dur­ing their League A Group C cam­paign, T&T un­der for­mer coach Den­nis Lawrence failed to win any of its four match­es, suf­fer­ing de­feats to Hon­duras, 4-0 and 2-0 and a draw against ver­sus Mar­tinique, 2-2 and 1-1 to fin­ish bot­tom of the three-team group to be de­mot­ed to League B.
The trio of Haiti, Bermu­da, and Cu­ba was al­so rel­e­gat­ed from their re­spec­tive pools in League A while Ba­hamas, Bar­ba­dos, Guade­loupe, and Guatemala gained pro­mo­tion as League C pool win­ners.
The eight de­mot­ed and pro­mot­ed coun­tries from League A and C re­spec­tive­ly are joined by An­tigua and Bar­bu­da, Be­lize, Do­mini­can Re­pub­lic, French Guiana, Guyana, Montser­rat, Nicaragua, and Saint Vin­cent and the Grenadines who were sec­ond and third-placed fin­ish­ers in their re­spec­tive League B pools in the 16-team draw for the 2022/2023 League B com­pe­ti­tion.
The draw will take place on Mon­day, April 4, in Mi­a­mi, Flori­da fea­tur­ing the par­tic­i­pa­tion of Con­ca­caf Pres­i­dent and FI­FA vice-pres­i­dent, Vic­tor Mon­tagliani, as well as cur­rent and for­mer coach­es and play­ers, and guests from the world of in­ter­na­tion­al foot­ball.
The three draws, one for each league (A, B, and C), will all be done us­ing a sin­gle-blind sys­tem in­volv­ing three pots for League A, four pots for League B, and three Pots for League C.
The 41 par­tic­i­pat­ing Con­ca­caf Mem­ber As­so­ci­a­tions will be al­lo­cat­ed in their re­spec­tive League pots ac­cord­ing to their Con­ca­caf rank­ing fol­low­ing the FI­FA in­ter­na­tion­al match win­dow of March 2022.
And for League B, the four high­est-ranked teams will all be in Pot 1 which means, 87th ranked Haiti, T&T (#100), Guatemala (#122) and An­tigua & Bar­bu­da (#127) will be bunched to­geth­er.
The sec­ond pot in League B will com­prise Nicaragua (#143), Do­mini­can Re­pub­lic (#156), Bar­ba­dos (#162), and Bermu­da (#166) while Pot Three com­pris­es Be­lize (#170), St Vin­cent and The Grenadines (#174), Guyana (#176), and Montser­rat (#178) while Pot Four will fea­ture 179th-ranked Cu­ba, Ba­hamas (#201) and non-Fi­fa mem­bers, French Guiana, and Guade­loupe, both French over­seas de­part­ments.
League A com­pris­es 12 teams in­clu­sive of USA, Cana­da, Cos­ta Ri­ca, Cu­raçao, El Sal­vador (pro­mot­ed), Grena­da (pro­mot­ed), Hon­duras, Ja­maica (pro­mot­ed), Mar­tinique, Mex­i­co, Pana­ma, and Suri­name (pro­mot­ed) while League C fea­tures 13 na­tions, An­guil­la, Aru­ba (rel­e­gat­ed), Bonaire, British Vir­gin Is­lands, Cay­man Is­lands, Do­mini­ca (rel­e­gat­ed), Puer­to Ri­co, Saint Kitts and Nevis (rel­e­gat­ed), Saint Lu­cia (rel­e­gat­ed), Saint Mar­tin, Sint Maarten, Turks and Caicos Is­lands, and US Vir­gin Is­lands.
