A total of 31 teams are hoping to be involved, with the Caribbean Football Union (CFU) and Union Centro Americano (UNCAF) staging pre-qualifiers to determine their entrants. The CFU tournament will take place between 21 May and 27 July 2014, with three places at the CONCACAF finals up for grabs, while two berths will be fought over at the UNCAF event between 19 and 25 May.

The two finalists and winner of the match for third place will advance automatically, while the side finishing fourth will go into a play-off against a team from CONMEBOL for the chance to join the top trio at Canada 2015.
