    Draw Determines Matchups for the Finals of the Caribbean Club Competition 2017

    MIAMI -- CONCACAF held Wednesday the draw for the 2017 Caribbean Club Championship finals that will be played at Hasely Crawford Stadium in Port of Spain, Trinidad & Tobago, from May 14-21.

    The competition's champion will qualify for the newly re-formatted Scotiabank CONCACAF Champions League, while the second-, third- and fourth-place clubs will participate in the Confederation’s newly launched club championship for Caribbean and Central American clubs that kicks off in August.

    The draw, which was conducted by CONCACAF's Director of Caribbean Football Horace Reid determined the groups and match schedule.

    Two-time defending champion and tournament host Central FC (Trinidad & Tobago) was seeded into Group A and will face Cibao FC (Dominican Republic) and Grenades FC (Antigua & Barbuda), while San Juan Jabloteh FC (Trinidad & Tobago) was sorted in Group B with Portmore United (Jamaica) and Racing FC (Haiti), in Group B.  

    For the draw, the seeded teams were placed in positions A1 and B1, while the other four qualified clubs were sorted one by one. First, the name of the club was pulled from Pot 1, followed by the position from Pot 2.

    Group A 
    Central FC (Trinidad & Tobago) 
    Cibao FC (Dominican Republic)
    Grenades FC (Antigua & Barbuda)

    Group B
    San Juan Jabloteh FC (Trinidad & Tobago)
    Portmore United FC (Jamaica
    Racing FC (Haiti)

    The Caribbean Club Championship has been contested annually since 1997 (with the exception of 1999 and 2008), when United Petrotrin of Trinidad & Tobago captured the inaugural title.  A champion has been crowned 16 times, with DirecTV W Connection, also of Trinidad & Tobago, lifting the trophy a record three times.

    Last year, Central FC defended its Caribbean title by prevailing over fellow Trinidadian side DirecTV W Connection in the final for the second straight year, 3-0.
