There will be:

2 groups of 6.

Group Winners qualify.

2nd and 3rd placed teams from the groups play in playoffs to determine which teams get the other 2 qualification spots.

Much better format than what they have now.

Can they apply this to Olympic qualifying?

I could see them doing something similar with Olympic qualifying.

Just make it 1 group of 8 teams in round robin play, and the winner and runner-up of the group qualifies for the Olympics.

Yea it should be like South America a round robin where they play everyone and the top teams qualify. In this case 2 for Concacaf.

Sweet. So US and Mexico will likely always be in seperate groups. US should always be able to win their group but if not they'll get that one last game or last h2h to still get in. Much better format
