The coronavirus pandemic has forced the postponement of another soccer tournament. In a decision that did not come as a surprise, Concacaf today postponed the Men’s U-20 Championships, which serves as qualifying for the U-20 World Cup. The World Cup qualifying tournament was set to take place from June 20th through July 5th.

United States U-20 head coach Anthony Hudson, who was named U-20 head coach earlier this year, was set to lead his team into the tournament with aspirations of qualifying for the U-20 World Cup, which is set to take place late next spring in Indonesia. It is unclear whether the World Cup will be delayed or postponed at this time given the increasingly busy 2021 calendar due to postponements and rescheduled tournaments stemming from the coronavirus pandemic.

Concacaf did not announce a date for the rescheduling of the Men’s U-20 Championships, but for now, the U-20s will have to wait a while before they get a chance to qualify once again for the U-20 World Cup.
