Competition format[edit]

There was no tournament in 2008 because, prior to this edition, the CFU Club Championship had been held near the end of the calendar year, but in 2008 it was decided that it would be held near the beginning of the following calendar year in order to have the competition take place closer to the next CONCACAF Champions League, which uses this tournament as the Caribbean zone qualifying tournament. As a result, this, the next tournament, was held in early 2009.

The draw for the first round was held at the CONCACAF office in New York City on January 15.[1][2] The first round matches were originally scheduled to be held over two legs on March 18 and 25. The draw for round two was completed immediately following the first round draw. The second round will also be two-legged and will be held in mid-April. The semi-finals, final and third-place match will be single-elimination matches hosted in Trinidad and Tobago. The semi-finals will be played on May 15, and the final and third-place match will be played two days later at the same venue.


The first round was played among clubs from two pots. Each club was drawn against another club from the opposing pot.[3]

1st Round[edit]

The first round was contested in five two-legged matchups. Team #1 in each matchup hosted the first leg. The schedule for the first round legs was updated on March 11 due to necessary travel accommodations for clubs and local events occurring in Aruba and Haiti that would conflict with the original match schedule.[4]
