    Miami (Friday, October 25, 2013) – The Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF) tonight confirmed the quarterfinal pairings for the 2013-14 edition of the CONCACAF Champions League, the region’s premier competition for clubs.

    The matchups for quarterfinal play are as follows:

    Cruz Azul FC (2) vs. Sporting Kansas City (7)

    Club Tijuana (3) vs. LA Galaxy (6)

    The four quarterfinal matchups will be played in home-and-away format, with the 1st Leg matches on March 11-13, followed by return legs on March 18-20.  Exact match dates for each quarterfinal will be announced in coming days.

    The eight teams emerged from the original field of 24, which kicked off group play on August 6th in the quest to replace three-time defending champion CF Monterrey as the region’s club champion.

    The quarterfinal matchups were determined by a ranking of winners of each of the eight groups, according to a formula including points obtained in the group phase followed by goal differential. The winner of each of the four quarterfinal pairings will advance to the semifinal round.
