Colima Host of the First Boys U17 Pan American Cup

COLIMA, Mexico, June 14, 2024.- The city of Colima, Mexico will host the first Boys U17 Pan American Cup from June 17-22 at the Multifunctional Auditorium in Colima.

In this same venue, the fourteenth edition of the Men’s Senior Pan American Cup was held in 2019.

The Boys U17 Pan American Cup is an event that is part of the qualification system for the NORCECA U17 Continental Championship in 2025 and the age-group FIVB World Championship in 2026.

The tournament will have seven national teams competing, divided into two pools.

Canada, Costa Rica, Guatemala and host Mexico are in pool A; and pool B consists of Cuba, Nicaragua and Puerto Rico.

Puerto Rico won the first NORCECA U17 Continental Championship last November in Poza Rica, Mexico, qualifying for the 2024 FIVB Boys U17 World Championship along with Mexico who finished second and Cuba in third place.

The preliminary pool-play round begins on Monday, June 17. Teams finishing first place in each pool will advance directly to the semifinals; the second and third-place teams will compete in the quarterfinals.
