The top four teams qualified for the 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup, while the fifth-placed team advanced to a play-off against the fifth-placed team from the 2017 Copa Centroamericana for the final Gold Cup berth.

The host for the final round was expected to be announced in January 2016.[3]

Martinique was announced as host on 25 January 2017, winning over bids of Curaçao and French Guiana. The draw for the semi-finals was also conducted on the same day at the CFU office in St. John's, Antigua and Barbuda.[4][5]

Curaçao won their first and only title following a 2–1 win over Jamaica in the final.
