In 2009 the tournament returned to a championship format in which all four semifinalists qualify to the FIFA U-17 World Cup. [1] The 2009 tournament was cut short due to the swine flu outbreak in Mexico. [2] No championship round was played as a result of the cancellation, and the tournament ended with four teams qualifying to the 2009 FIFA U-17 World Cup without determining a regional champion. Until 1988 the tournament was held as an Under 16 edition. [3]
