2014 World Cup Preliminary Draw
RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil – Former Gold Cup champion Canada was placed in a group with St. Kitts & Nevis, Puerto Rico and St. Lucia while Trinidad & Tobago was joined with Guyana, Barbados and Bermuda in Saturday’s World Cup preliminary draw.

The event set the matches for the first league stage of CONCACAF qualifying for the 2014 championship, dividing 24 teams into six groups of four.
Five preliminary phase winners: Bahamas, Belize, the Dominican Republic, St. Lucia and the U.S. Virgin Islands – plus Bermuda which received a bye — were joined by 18 others for the draw.
El Salvador led Group Awith Suriname, Cayman Islands and the Dominican Republic; Trinidad topped Group B; Group C consisted of Panama, Dominica, Nicaragua and the Bahamas; Group D was the Canada group; Group E was comprised of Gold Cup qualifiers Grenada and Guatemala as well as St. Vincent & the Grenadines and Belize; while Group F was made up of Haiti, Antigua & Barbuda, Curacao and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Play will commence on September 6 with the first of six rounds, finishing on November 15.
The six group winners will advance to the 12-team semifinal round with the United States, Mexico, Honduras, Costa Rica, Jamaica and Cuba.
The draw also set the groupings for that stage with the United States and Jamaica facing the winners from Groups E and F; Mexico and Costa Rica will play with winners from Groups A and B; and Honduras and Cuba facing the winners from Groups C and D.
Two teams from each of those groups will advance to the final round of qualifying – commonly known as the «hexagonal».
Three teams from CONCACAF are guaranteed to qualify for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, with the fourth-placed team from the hexagonal facing off against the fifth-place team from Asia for another berth.
