Concacaf World Cup qualifying might have to wait until March 2021. Victor Montagliani expressed different scenarios that could be given in the competition.

"No, it's likely not to go ahead in October. I have a meeting at the end of this week with FIFA on this issue, and for me to say that it likely will go ahead would be a lie. It likely won't go ahead in October. We're actually looking at what even November would look like", Montagliani said when he was inteviewed by OneSoccer.

Montagliani said Concacaf is aiming for november, to re start the competition. But, the more likely scenario is that the start will be delayed until March 2021 due to pandemic.

"So, round one, which is where Canada is starting, would start as early as November, but even likely next March. So what we're talking about with FIFA is where would these dates that we lose, where would they go on the calendar in 2021-'22", he added.
