CONCACAF reschedules women’s under-17 championship
MIAMI (AP) The confederation for the North and Central American and Caribbean regions has rescheduled the women’s under-17 championship, which was suspended last month because of violence in Nicaragua.
The tournament will resume on June 6 at the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida. It will determine the region’s qualifiers for the under-17 World Cup in Uruguay, which starts Nov. 13.
Violent protests in Nicaragua sparked by government social security reforms have been ongoing since mid-April.
