The Bermuda Senior Men’s National Team prepare to take on Sint Maarten in the CONCACAF Nations League Qualifier.
An essential clash between Bermuda Senior Men’s National Team and Sint Maarten has been set for October 12th, at National Sports Center in Prospect. Sint Maarten represents the Dutch side of the Caribbean island of Saint Martin, not to be confused with the French side of Saint Martin.
In their last international matches, Sint Maartin experienced a disappointing 13 – 0 “reality check” at the hands Haiti, while Bermuda experienced a less dramatic, but no less disappointing 3-1 loss to Aruba. Thus, leaving both teams with a fiery resolve to bring redemption to their nations.
CONCACAF began its inaugural Nations League qualifying tournament on September 6thwith the opening match between Dominica and Suriname. Team Bermuda Gombey Warriors opened their campaign in Curacao versus Aruba on September 9thbut their focus must now shift back home when the unrivaled beauty of Bermuda will be the backdrop for the country’s 2ndCONCACAF Nations League Qualifying match.

Each team in qualifying will play four matches between Sept. 2018 and Mar. 2019. The opponents were randomly drawn and all of the national teams will be sorted into an aggregate table to determine which League they will remain going forward.
