[TELEVISION WATCH]Universal Sports Network and Telemundo will air Concacaf's men’s and women’s qualifying tournaments next year.

Universal Sports Network has exclusive English-language rights of all matches featuring the United States and the finals from each of the tournaments. Telemundo will provide exclusive Spanish-language television coverage of both tournaments in the United States.

The women’s tournament will take place Jan. 19-29, 2012, at BC Place in Vancouver. The two semifinal winners will qualify for the 2012 Olympic Games in London.

The USA will play Mexico, which upset the Americans in the semifinals of last year’s Women’s World Cup Qualifying, as well as Guatemala and the Dominican Republic in one group. Reigning Concacaf champion Canada will face Costa Rica, Cuba and Haiti in the other group.
 
The men’s tournament will be played from March 22-April 2. The group stage will be played at the Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif., and LP Field in Nashville, Tenn. The semifinals and final will take place at the new Livestrong Sporting Park in Kansas City, Kan.

The two men's finalists will also qualify for the 2012 Olympic Games.

The men’s tournament will include the USA, Canada, Mexico, El Salvador, Honduras and Panama.  The final two participants will be decided in the final round of Caribbean qualifying November 24-28 in Basseterre, featuring Trinidad & Tobago, Suriname, Cuba and host St. Kitts & Nevis.
