One of the most successful clubs in the region, Club America is making its second appearance in the CONCACAF Champions League, following up on last year’s debut. The Aguilas are level with archrival Guadalajara for the most Mexican titles (11) and have never been relegated to the second division. Additionally, Club America has the second-most CONCACAF club titles with five, one behind current-holder Cruz Azul. Defenders Paul Aguilar and Miguel Layun, plus forwards Oribe Peralta (the 2013 CONCACAF Player of Year) and Raul Jimenez were on Mexico’s 2014 FIFA World Cup roster. Founded in 1916, the club is owned by media company Grupo Televisa and plays its home matches at the 105,000 seat Estadio Azteca. Club America will face Comunicaciones (Guatemala) and Puerto Rico Bayamon FC in Group 8 play.
