Alternate Reality CONCACAF

Wandering through the Strange Maps site, found this map of a Balkanized North America. So, naturally, I stopped everything I was doing and pondered what CONCACAF would look like today. I'm sure you would have done the same thing.

Under the premise of this map, Mexico's CONCACAF dominance probably rolls merrily along. Especially if FIFA pulled the 1994 World Cup away from the United States after it failed to qualify for the 1990 World Cup - after all, who scores the Shot Heard Round the World if Paul Caligiuri is capped for California?

Jack Warner would have had a little more trouble holding onto his empire, of course...but if we were truly serious about dethroning Warner, we'd split the USSF into fifty federations, and take over CONCACAF, and probably FIFA as well. Only one or two of those new federations would see the good side of the World Cup more than once every hundred years, of course, but omelettes, eggs, etc.

And, well, we'd have a slightly expanded field for the Champions' Cup, with these teams added to the mix:
