The eight nation tournament will feature two groups of four teams each and will send three countries to the 2016 FIFA Under-17 Women’s World Cup to be held from Sept. 30-October 21 in Jordan. After round-robin play within the groups, the top two finishers in each group will cross-over for the semifinals with the winners of those games, along the winner of the third-place match, earning berths to the World Cup.
