The 2011–12 CONCACAF Champions League Championship Round was played from March to April 2012. A total of eight teams qualified for the Championship Round: the four group winners and the four group runners-up from the Group Stage.

The draw for the Championship Round was held on November 8, 2011, at the CONCACAF headquarters in New York City.[1] In the quarterfinals, the group winners were assured of playing the second leg at home, and were drawn against the group runners-up, with the only restriction being that they could not face the same team that they played in the Group Stage (and thus they may face a team from the same association).[2]

The championship round is played in knockout format. Each tie is played over two legs, and the away goals rule would be used, but not after a tie enters extra time, and so a tie would be decided by penalty shootout if the aggregate score is level after extra time.[2]
