The draw conducted Tuesday at the confederation’s New York headquarters by Deputy General Secretary Ted Howard set the first round of the tournament, putting Panama and Trinidad & Tobago in with Mexico and Honduras in Group B.
The United States, seeded atop Group A, will play at LP Field in Nashville, Tennessee, while Group B will face off at The Home Depot Center in the Los Angeles suburb of Carson. The semifinals and finals will be played at LIVESTRONG Sporting Park in Kansas City, Kansas.
A full schedule for the March 22-April 2 tournament is expected to be announced by the end of the week.
Semifinal winners will qualify for the July 27-August 12 London Olympic Games.
The draw sets up a potential rematch of the 2008 CONCACAF Olympic qualifying title match between the United States and Honduras in the semifinals. Honduras beat the Americans 1-0 in extra time in Nashville.
