The Trinidad and Tobago Women’s National Senior Team will kick off their Tokyo 2020 Olympic campaign on Monday 30 September when they face Aruba from 5pm in the second game of a double header at the Ato Boldon Stadium in Couva.

All five nations play each other in a round robin format with the group winner alone advancing to the 2020 Concacaf Women’s Gold Cup tournament, which serves as a qualifying series for the Olympic Games.

Only Trinidad and Tobago women’s footballers have a chance to compete in the Olympic qualifying campaign after the Trinidad and Tobago Football Association (TTFA) opted not to send an under-23 men’s team—despite an offer of financial support from the Ministry of Sport.
