    CONCACAF Champions' Cup - Caribbean Qualifying Begins

    Caribbean qualifying for the 2006 CONCACAF Champions' Cup kicked off with the first game in Series D on 12 September.

    Royal '95 of Surinam were held to a goalless draw by visiting SV Victory Boys of Netherlands Antilles in their Series D qualifying game in Paramaribo, Surinam. The decisive second leg of the home-and-away series takes place on 24 September in Bandariba, Netherlands Antilles.

    The first round of Caribbean qualifying continues on September 14 when Northern United (LCA) host Positive Vibes (VIR) in Series E.

    The opening games in the other home-and-away series take place later this month with SV Britannia (ARU) hosting SV Robinhood (SUR) in Series A, on 18 September. Series B begins with Bassa FC visiting Sagicor South East (DMA) for the first leg of their encounter on 23 September. The final First Round Series, Series C, begins with RD Grand Bazaar Dublanc (DMA) at home to Hoppers FC (ATG) on 22 September.

    The five victorious teams from the First Round of Caribbean qualifying will join North East Stars (TRI), Portmore United (JAM) and SV Centro Social Deportivo Barber (ANT) for the quarterfinal home-and-away fixtures scheduled for next month. Semifinal matches take place in November with the Caribbean champion club to be crowned through a final home-and-away series in December.

    The Caribbean champion will join two clubs each from Mexico and USA, along with three Central American teams, in the 2006 CONCACAF Champions' Cup with the winner of that event taking on the best of the World in FIFA's 2006 Club World Championship.

    Meanwhile, the current CONCACAF Club Champion, Costa Rica's Deportivo Saprissa, will face the world's best in the 2005 FIFA Club World Championship to be held in Japan in December this year.
