Feel free to begin making your plans to catch the CONCACAF Olympic qualifying tournament.
CONCACAF announced that the tournament will take place at three sites in the United States starting in late March, with eight teams vying for two spots at the 2012 Olympics in London. So far, the United States, Mexico, Canada, El Salvador, Guatemala and Panama have qualified for the tournament.
Livestrong Sporting Park in Kansas City, Kan., will host the semifinals of the tournament on March 31, with the winners not only moving on to the April 2 final (which will also be played in Kansas City), but also cementing berths at the Summer Olympics.
Prior to that, one group will play its games at LP Field in Nashville, Tenn., on March 22, 24 and 26. The other will play its games at the Home Depot center in Carson, Calif., on March 23, 25 and 27, and the top two teams from each group will advance to the semifinals.
What do you think about the site choices? Planning on going to the games? Excited that Kansas City will be hosting the final?
