The CCCF Championship was an association football (soccer) tournament made for teams in the area of Central America and the Caribbean between the years of 1941 and 1961. It was founded in 1938 and the precursor of the CONCACAF, that was formed when CCCF (Confederacion Centroamericana y del Caribe de Futbol) merged with the NAFC (North American Football Confederation) in 1961. The North American Football Confederation also organized the NAFC Championship in 1947 and 1949, which was revived in 1990 and 1991, after 41 years of absence, before the introduction of the CONCACAF Gold Cup.

The CCCF Championship was succeeded by the CONCACAF Championship in 1963, following the merger.
