BVI Football Association President, Andy Bickerton.

PRESS RELEASE: President of the BVI Football Association, Andy Bickerton has expressed optimism and confidence following the inaugural CONCACAF Nations League draw held in Miami, Florida.

The Senior men’s team will be facing Martinique, Suriname, Bonaire, and the Turks and Caicos in the Nations League qualifying rounds with the first fixture against Martinique scheduled for September 18.

Further games will follow on October 18 (Suriname) and then an enticing home game against Bonaire on November 18. The final game, also at home, will be against the Turks and Caicos.

“It’s a good draw for us … We are confident we can be competitive in each game, especially the two home games, given we can use the A.O. Shirley Ground,” Bickerton said.

The CONCACAF Nations League begins in September with a one-off qualifying phase, while the group phase, consisting of three-tiered leagues will kick off in 2019.

The top league will end with a final to crown the Nations League champion, and the competition will also serve to unify the qualifying path for the region’s national teams to the newly expanded Gold Cup.
