What is Concacaf?

The Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF /ˈkɒnkəkæf/ KON-kə-kaf; typeset for branding purposes since 2018 as Concacaf) is one of FIFA's six continental governing bodies for association football. Its 41 member associations represent countries and territories mainly in North America, including the Caribbean and Central America, and due to geopolitical reasons, three nations from The Guianas subregion of South America — Guyana, Suriname, and French Guiana (an overseas region of France). The CONCACAF's primary functions are to organize competitions for national teams and clubs, and to conduct the World Cup and Women's World Cup qualifying tournaments.

What is the World of Concacaf?

This podcast is dedicated to the most wonderful, absurd, ridiculous and geographically proximate region of world soccer. Concacaf has a way of always leaving us stunned in wonder or in disbelief, sometimes both. Soccer snobs in America look to Europe for the greatest competition, we are here to get you to see what's around us already.
