    CCL: All-Time Caribbean Qualifiers

    KINGSTON, Jamaica - With seven teams divided into two groups, Caribbean qualifying for the 2013/14 CONCACAF Champions League (CCL) started on Friday. Three berths for the confederation's annual club championship are at stake.

    For the first time in CCL history, the Puerto Rico Islanders - one of only three teams to participate in the first five editions of the tournament (Honduras' Olimpia and Isidro Metapan of El Salvador are the others) is not among the contenders.

    Caledonia AIA and W Connection, both of Trinidad & Tobago, are hoping to secure a CCL place for the second consecutive year, while each of the other five competitors are looking to qualify for the first time.

    Since its inception, eight different teams from the Caribbean have advanced to the CCL.

    Below, CONCACAF.com gives you a look at the history of Caribbean CCL qualifying.
