NEW YORK - Tempete FC's home leg against Alpha United of Guyana in the first round of the CFU Club Champions Cup has been postponed a week until April 5, the Caribbean Football Union announced Friday.
The match was to be played Sunday in Saint-Marc, Haiti, but the delay was caused by travel difficulties encountered by Alpha United, the CFU said.
Tempete rallied for a 1-1 draw at Alpha United in the first leg on March 23 on an own-goal by Kelvin McKenzie. The winner advances to a second-round meeting against the victory between Sevilla FC of Puerto Rico and the Greenbay Hoppers of Antigua.
They drew 3-3 in the first leg of their series in Puerto Rico on March 21.
The Caribbean championship qualifies three teams for next season's CONCACAF Champions League.
