The last two teams to qualify for the 2023 World Cup were decided in Kingston, Jamaica from Sunday, October 16 to Saturday, October 22. The regional qualifier for The Americas was a round-robin tournament between nine countries. The host country of Jamaica was already qualified for the World Cup, so the next two highest-placed countries were the ones to join them among the 16 teams competing in Cape Town.

Half of the games were live-streamed. Throughout much of The Americas region, (including all competing countries except the USA), the games were shown on SportsMax TV. For everyone else, the games were on Netball Pass
