Miami, July 15, 2016: The Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF) informs media that the accreditation process for the CONCACAF Under-15 Girls’ Championship 2016 is open to all media as of today.
Media members can apply by visiting this LINK and filling out the application in its entirety. Note that incomplete applications will not be considered.
The initial accreditation period for all media closes on Tuesday, August 2 at 6:00 pm ET. After this date, applications will be evaluated and may take up to 48 hours to process.
Approved applicants will receive an email confirmation, at the latest within 48 hours after the deadline passes. Please do not contact CONCACAF requesting information on individual applications before this time; as such requests will not be answered.
As always at CONCACAF events, absolutely NO WALK-UP CREDENTIALS WILL BE ISSUED TO MEDIA AT ANY VENUE. Please do not come to the venue planning to perform a media function without prior confirmation of approval of the accreditation application, as media will not be able to access the complex without an official tournament accreditation.

Twenty-two (22) nations from across the CONCACAF region, as well as invitee Venezuela from CONMEBOL, have signed on to participate in the tournament, designed to encourage development for youth players from across the Confederation, while promoting competition at the international level for all member associations – including those for which few opportunities have previously existed at this age level.
Canada is the defending champion, after defeating Haiti 4-1 in penalties, in the title match of the 2014 edition, played in the Cayman Islands.
