Concacaf's U-17 Cancelled/Swine Flu Outbreak

Concacaf cancela final de clasificatorio Sub 17 por gripe porcina.

El ente rector del fútbol en Norte y Centroamérica decidió suspender también la final de la Liga de Campeones de Clubes.

EFE Lunes 27 de Abril de 2009

CIUDAD DE MÉXICO.- La Concacaf canceló hoy las finales del torneo de fútbol Sub 17, que ya clasificó cuatro países al Mundial de Nigeria, y aplazó la final de la Liga de Campeones de Clubes a raíz del brote de gripe porcina que deja, al menos, 149 muertes probables y veinte confirmadas en México.



El torneo Sub 17 se disputa en la ciudad mexicana de Tijuana, fronteriza con EE.UU. con la participación de ocho selecciones del área de Concacaf, mientras que los conjuntos mexicanos Atlante y Cruz Azul debían disputar este miércoles, en el balneario de Cancún (este), el partido de vuelta de la final de la Liga de Campeones, que da al campeón una plaza en el Mundial Interclubes.



La cancelación de estos dos eventos se produjo ante las "crecientes preocupaciones acerca del reciente brote de influenza (gripe porcina) en México", dijo en un comunicado el Secretario General de a Confederación Norte, Centroamericana y del Caribe de Fútbol (Concacaf), Chuck Blazer.



Las semifinales del torneo Sub 17 se debían disputar este miércoles con los partidos México-Honduras y Estados Unidos-Costa Rica, y la final estaba prevista para el 2 de mayo.



Esas cuatro selecciones ya están clasificadas al Mundial Sub 17 que se disputará en Nigeria del 24 de octubre al 15 de noviembre, tras superar el pasado fin de semana en la primera fase a Canadá, Cuba, Guatemala y Trinidad y Tobago, cuyas delegaciones ya están retornando a sus respectivos países.



La Concacaf precisó que sus decisiones han sido tomadas con base en las "acciones del gobierno Mexicano", que recomendó evitar las aglomeraciones para prevenir el contagio, y para "salvaguardar la salud de los jugadores, oficiales y fanáticos".



La final de la Liga de Campeones de la Concacaf estaba prevista para este miércoles en la ciudad mexicana de Cancún entre el Atlante y el Cruz Azul. Atlante ganó por 0-2 el compromiso de ida, que se disputó hace una semana en la capital mexicana.



El partido entre el Atlante y el Cruz Azul se jugará el 12 de mayo a las 21:00 hora local (02:00 GMT) en Cancún, señaló la Concacaf. La Concacaf también precisó que por el momento se mantiene vigente el Campeonato de Fútbol Playa que se disputa en Puerto Vallarta, estado de Jalisco, en el oeste de México, aunque el martes revisará el asunto para tomar una decisión final.

Remainder of U-17s canceled, Champions League decider postponed due to swine flu concern

4/27/2009 -

NEW YORK –Due to the growing concerns about the outbreak of swine flu in Mexico, CONCACAF General Secretary Chuck Blazer announced Monday that the remainder of the confederation’s Under-17 Championship in Tijuana has been cancelled and the second leg of the Champions League finals has been postponed.

Mexican authorities previously had closed schools in Mexico City and on Monday extended that decision nationwide. Based on the actions of the Mexican government, CONCACAF responded to safeguard the health of players, officials and fans.

Costa Rica, Honduras, Mexico and the United States all had clinched berths the FIFA U-17 World Cup, and were to play the semifinals on Wednesday with the championship and third-place match scheduled for Saturday. The four semifinalists will advance to the U-17 World Cup in Nigeria October 24-November 15.

The second leg of the Champions League finals between Cruz Azul and Atlante FC was to be played Wednesday in Cancun, but that game now will be delayed until Tuesday, May 12 at 9 p.m. local (10 p.m. EDT). Atlante leads the two-leg title series 2-0 from its opening win in Mexico City on Wednesday.

The CONCACAF Beach Championship in Puerto Vallarta, scheduled to begin Wednesday and continue through Sunday, is under review with a final decision expected Tuesday.
