The six group stage winners will progress to the second stage where they will face-off against each other in a direct elimination format over twe legs.
The three winning teams from stage two will progress to the third and final stage where they will join the CONCACAF nations ranked 1-5. These eight teams will then play each other home and away, with each team playing 14 matches in total. The top three finishing teams will qualify directly for the FIFA World Cup 2022 finals.
