2014 FIFA World Cup qualification – CONCACAF Third Round

This page provides the summaries of the CONCACAF Third Round matches for 2014 FIFA World Cup qualification.

FormatEdit

The third round saw the teams ranked 1–6 joined by the 6 group winners from the second round. These teams were drawn into three groups of four teams, at the World Cup Preliminary Draw at the Marina da Glória in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on 30 July 2011.[1]

The matches were played from 8 June to 16 October 2012. The top two teams from each group advanced to the fourth round.

SeedingEdit

The draw for the third round was held before the second round matches were played, so only the six teams with byes to the round were known at the time of the draw. Teams were seeded into three pots, with Pot 1 containing the top 3 seeds, Pot 2 seeds 4 to 6, and Pot 3 the 6 (unknown) group winners from the second round (designated Winner A to Winner F). Each third round group will contain one team from Pot 1, one team from Pot 2 and two teams from Pot 3.[1]
