The UNCAF Club Tournament was an annual international football competition held in the UNCAF region (Central America). The competition was open to the leading domestic club teams in the region. The winners of each national league qualified automatically. It also provided qualification places for the CONCACAF Champions' Cup, to which the top 3 teams advance. Starting in 2008, all of the Central American nations have 1 or 2 teams each participating in the expanded CONCACAF Champions League, thus this tournament ceased to be played.

The tournament had been known as the Copa Fraternidad Centroamericana from 1971 to 1983. It was discontinued between 1983 and 1996 when it was revilitalized as the Torneo Grandes de Centroamerica. However, this edition only lasted until 1998 when the tournament was renamed Copa Interclubes UNCAF. It was held on an annual basis between 1998 and the last edition played in 2007.
