    MIAMI – After falling 1-0 to Tauro FC in the 2017 Panamanian Clausura final on Saturday night, Arabe Unido became the last team to book a place in the 2017 Scotiabank CONCACAF League (SCL) -- the competition’s first-ever edition – that is slated to kick-off in August.

    As part of CONCACAF’s enhanced club competition platform, the SCL champion will earn a berth in the 2018 Scotiabank CONCACAF Champions League.

    The 16-team SCL competition consists solely of clubs from Central America (13) and the Caribbean (3).
