In terms of domestic titles, Comunicaciones’ 28 Guatemalan crowns are only one behind rival Municipal. The Cremas are making their second straight CONCACAF Champions League appearance and fourth overall. In the 2009/10 edition, Comunicaciones advanced out of Group D as runner-up to Pumas, before falling to eventual champion Pachuca by a single goal, 3-2 on aggregate, in the two-legged quarterfinals. It has won four consecutive Guatemalan championships, defeating Municipal, 2-0 on aggregate, to lift the 2014 Clausura trophy. Shortly after that triump, head coach Ivan Franco Sopegno left to take the reins of Guatemala and was replaced by Willy Olivera. During the offseason, the club has made seven roster additions: Francisco Joel Benítez, Rolando Blackburn, Carlos Gallardo, Agustín Herrera, José Hidalgo, Nelson Enrique Miranda and Rubén Darío Morales. Comunicaciones, which shared the 1978 CONCACAF Champions Cup title with Defence Force (Trinidad & Tobago) and Universidad de Guadalajara (Mexico), will face Club America (Mexico) and Puerto Rico Bayamon FC (Puerto Rico) in Group 8 play.
