Competitions

National teams

The national teams of Canada, Mexico, United States are always qualified to the final stage of the CONCACAF Gold Cup, so there is no qualifying tournament for this zone, unlike the tournaments for the Central American Football Union (UNCAF) and the Caribbean Football Union (CFU). However, as members of CONCACAF there were two tournaments previous to the Gold Cup.

Clubs

The North American SuperLiga was a club tournament between two North American zone leagues that ran from 2007-2010. It was an official tournament sanctioned by CONCACAF, but not organized by the federation.[5] When zone qualifiers were used for the CONCACAF Champions Cup, Bermudian clubs played against Mexican and/or American clubs.
