Boyz to play Guyana, Antigua and Aruba in League B of Nations League

Jamaica's Reggae Boyz will play Guyana, Antigua and Barbuda and Aruba in League B of the inaugural Concacaf Nations League.

The four teams are drawn in Group C.

This was revealed on Wednesday at the official draw at the Chelsea Theater in Las Vegas, Nevada. 

The Reggae Boyz are competing in League B after El Salvador defeated them 2-0 in their final game of the qualifying round of the Nations League.

The result pushed the Reggae Boyz down to eighth place in the qualifiers.

The top six teams received promotions to  League A where they joined Mexico, USA, Costa Rica, Honduras, Trinidad and Tobago and Panama, who had qualified based on playing in the final round of Concacaf World Cup qualifying.

The home-and-away group stage of the 2019 Concacaf Nations league will be played on the FIFA match dates of September, October and November 2019. The Final Championship will take place in 2020.

At the conclusion of the group stage, the winners of each League A group will qualify to the Final Championship, while the League B and C group winners will be promoted to League A and B for the next edition of the competition. Additionally, the teams at the bottom of each League A and B group will be relegated to League B and C.
