FIFA U-20 World Cup qualifying tournament era
The format of the tournament was changed beginning with the 1998 tournament and ending with the 2007 tournament. In the five tournaments during that time the top eight teams in the region were divided into two groups of four, each group hosted by a separate nation, and the top two sides from each group were qualified to the FIFA U-20 World Cup. There was no championship round within the CONCACAF region. The tournament served solely to qualify the four allotments given to CONCACAF by FIFA for the U-20 World Cup.

The competition changed its format in 2015. The two group winners would secure a place in the final and the U-20 World Cup, the groups' second and third placed teams would compete in a repechage play-off to determine the qualifiers for the U-20 World Cup. The number of guaranteed games per team was increased from 2 to 5 and the semi-final stage was removed.
