The 1969 CONCACAF Championship was the fourth edition of the CONCACAF Championship, the football championship of North America, Central America and the Caribbean (CONCACAF). The tournament was held between 23 November to 8 December. Six teams participated in the tournament.

The event was hosted by Costa Rica in the city of San José. Seven team qualified, but Haiti's disqualification[1] left six teams to play in the round-robin format to determine the winner.
