Draw

The draw will take place on December 13, 2016 at 19:00 EST (UTC−5) at Sheraton Grand Panama, Panama City, Panama, and will be streamed live via CONCACAF.com.

Different from previous tournaments, the 12 teams were drawn into three groups of four teams in the group stage. Panama, Mexico and Costa Rica were seeded into each of the three groups.

  • Panama, as hosts, were seeded in position A1.
  • Costa Rica, as the best-ranked CONCACAF team in the 2015 FIFA U-17 World Cup, excluding Mexico, were seeded in position B1.
  • Mexico, as champions of the 2015 CONCACAF U-17 Championship, were seeded in position C1.
  • The remaining nine teams were allocated to pots 2–4 designed to ensure balanced and competitive groups weighted equally by region. They were drawn in order and placed in the group position drawn from Pots A, B and C.

    The top two teams from each group in the group stage advance to the classification stage, where the six teams are drawn into two groups of three teams. The positions of each group winner and runner-up from the group stage were then drawn in group pairs, randomly into the two groups (D and E) for the classification stage.

    The top two teams from each group in the classification stage qualify for the 2017 FIFA U-17 World Cup, with the group winners also advancing to the final to decide the champions of the CONCACAF U-17 Championship.
