[DATEBOOK] Eight national teams will square off in the United States this fall to determine the Concacaf representatives for the 2015 Women’s World Cup to be played in Canada. The tournament was originally scheduled to be played in Mexico, but issues with anticipated venues forced Concacaf to move qualifying.

The regional championship will serve as the finals of the Concacaf qualifiers from which the top three teams advance automatically to the Women’s World Cup. The fourth-place team will advance to a playoff against a South American team for an additional spot.

A preliminary competition will whittle down a field that is expected to consist of a record 31 nations vying for a spot in the Concacaf Women’s Championship in the U.S. Dates and venues for that competition are in discussion.

“Given our region’s historically outstanding results in women’s competition, Concacaf is proud to call itself the world’s home of women’s football,” said confederation president Jeffrey Webb in a statement. “Today, we have further evidence of that, in the record number of potential entrants seeking to join Canada -- host of next year’s FIFA Women’s World Cup -- at the finals in 2015.”

In August, Canada will also host the Under-20 Women’s World Cup, for which Costa Rica, Mexico, and the USA has qualified. Last spring, Costa Rica hosted the fourth Under-17 Women’s World Cup that was won by Japan.
