Journey of one region begins next month

It is wide known that the World Cup in 2026 is going to be held at the North, Central America and the Caribbean region. And precisely this confederation, who also would be the fourth, will start its qualifying path for the remaining three direct spots (or more) of the mentioned tournament. The format says that this continent would have three elimination phases, plus those teams who like to torture themselves even more can still qualify through intercontinental play-offs.
At the world football organization on 25 January was conducted the draw for the first 2 rounds, and all that is going to kick-off at the second part of next month. The ending results looks like this:

- Phase one. From here begins the four lowest teams of the region. Everything is going to start on 22 March and finish 4 nights later where 4 sides will try to eliminate themselves over 2 duels, so at the end 2 remains. Because the highest ranking team is facing the lowest counterpart, the mini layout looks like this:

Game 1: Turks and Caicos islands - Anguilla.
Game 2: British Virgins islands - United states Virgin islands.

Phase two. Dates from this stage are from 05 to 11 June before taking a long rest and resume at 04 until 10 June 2025. Here 28 teams plus 2 from previous stage have been drawn into six groups of five, and thus the little ball names have made the following fate:

Group A: Honduras, Antigua and Barbuda, Cuba, Bermuda, Cayman islands.

Group B: Costa Rica, Trinidad and Tobago, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Grenada, Bahamas.

Group C: Haiti, Curacao, Saint Lucia, Barbados, Aruba.

Group D: Panama, Nicaragua, Guyana, Montserrat, Belize.

Group E: Jamaica, Guatemala, Dominican Republic, Dominica, victorious team from match 2 from phase one.

Group F: El Salvador, Suriname, Puerto Rico, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, winner from match one of phase one.

Only the first 2 teams (group winners and those who are going to be second) will progress to the third stage.

Four days later after the layout was made the whole schedule was revealed to the public.
