    MIAMI – Following Cruz Azul’s magnificent run to the 2013-14 CONCACAF Champions League (CCL) title, thoughts immediately turn towards the competition’s next edition.

    The process to determine qualifiers for the 2014-15 CCL is in full swing as 15 of the eventual 24 qualifiers are already known.

    In December, El Salvador’s Isidro Metapan became the first team to qualify for every CCL (seven in total).  Olimpia of Honduras is the only other side possessing the potential to match that mark. 

    With nine coveted places still at stake, the next few weeks around the region promise to be lively and hard fought.
