    CONCACAF Champions League 2013/2014 Regulations

    MIAMI -- The CONCACAF Champions League tournament regulations as approved by the Executive Committee stipulate in section 2.2.1 that there cannot be two teams from the same country in the same group during group stage. In addition the regulations mandate that teams from Mexico and USA cannot be paired in the same group.

    The first stage of the Monday night draw produced two such conflicts, with Club Tijuana and Houston Dynamo matched in Group 5, and Cruz Azul and LA Galaxy paired in Group 8. The result therefore necessitated a second round of the draw, duly executed by CONCACAF General Secretary Enrique Sanz, which re-seeded the groups in question, complying with the applicable regulations. 

    Section 2.2.1
    2.2.1 Phase 1 Group Stage
    Twenty-four teams will participate in the Group Stage. 
    1. Teams will be placed or drawn into eight Groups consisting of three teams. 
    2. The draw will be conducted in such a way as to ensure that two or more teams from the same association will not play in the same Group and the four USA and four Mexican Teams will be drawn into separate Groups.
    3. In the event any "wildcard" teams enter the event, such teams may be drawn to play against teams from their own country.
    4. Wildcard teams are any teams entered into the event, at the sole discretion of the CONCACAF Executive Committee as a replacement for another team, above and beyond those teams ordinarily qualified to enter the event as defined in Appendix A. 
    5. Teams will play each opponent in their Group twice; once at home and once away.
