    2003 CONCACAF Champions Cup Final Dates Set

    The dates for the 2003 CONCACAF Champions Cup two-game final between the Mexican clubs CA Monarcas Morelia and Deportivo Toluca FC have been confirmed for the 17 September and 8 October.

    The draw to determine in which order the games will be played is set for Thursday, 4 September in Miami, Florida USA; presided over by CONCACAF General Secretary Chuck Blazer at a time and venue to be determined.

    This is the second consecutive year that the CONCACAF Champions Cup final is an all-Mexican affair, and it also marks only the second time in the 41-year history of the event that clubs from the same country will square off in the final.

    Toluca has not won the CONCACAF title since 1968, while Morelia is playing in their second consecutive final in 2003 as they try to claim their first-ever Championship Cup title, after losing a heartbreaking 1:0 decision to Pachuca CF of Mexico for the 2002 crown.

    Toluca reached the 2003 final after defeating Club América (MEX) 5:4 on aggregate in the semifinal series in May, while Morelia advanced to this year's finale after eliminating CD Necaxa (MEX) 6:0 on aggregate.
