CONCACAF U-20 Championship 1972

The tournament was to be held in Nicaragua in January 1973, but was postponed due to an
earthquake there in December 1972.  Bermuda (previously named as backup host) declined to
host the tournament due to short notice and the additional costs of hosting the associated
CONCACAF Congress.
