The Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF) is the governing body for association football in North America, Central America and the Caribbean. Three South American entities, the independent nations of Guyana and Suriname and the French department of French Guiana, are also members.
CONCACAF was founded in its current form on 18 September 1961 in Mexico City, Mexico by the merger of the NAFC and the CCCF, and it became one of the six continental confederations affiliated with FIFA. The headquarters of the confederation is located in Port-of-Spain, Trinidad
CONCACAF currently runs the following competitions:
1. CONCACAF Gold Cup – Official CONCACAF tournament.
2. CONCACAF Women's Gold Cup – Official women's tournament.

Men's football in the region has been dominated by Mexico, and in recent years United States has improved rapidly. Both have won all but one of the CONCACAF Gold Cup tournaments. The United States has been very successful in the women's game, being the only CONCACAF member to win any of the three major worldwide competitions in women's football, namely the World Cup, the Olympics and the Algarve Cup.
Only ten CONCACAF members have ever reached the FIFA World Cup since its inception in 1930, five of them accomplishing the feat only once. No team from the region has ever reached the final at the World Cup, but the United States has reached the semifinal in a FIFA World Cup in the first edition in 1930, where they were awarded third place, and they also reached the quarterfinal round in 2002.
