The 1989 Caribbean Cup (known as the Shell Caribbean Cup for sponsorship reasons) was the first edition of the Caribbean Cup, the football championship of the Caribbean, one of the CONCACAF zones. The final stage was hosted by Barbados.

The tournament was sponsored by Shell Company Ltd. after the tournament was first thought of by employees of Shell Antilles and Gulanas Ltd. Barbados received a bye to the final round as they were hosts of the competition and Shell (based in Barbados) felt that it was better suited to host the tournament as Barbados have an international airport.[1]
