Club Sport Herediano
No Costa Rican team has more appearances in the Scotiabank CONCACAF Champions League than Herediano, which will make its seventh appearance and fourth consecutive after capturing the 2016 Costa Rican Closing season crown, its 25th domestic title. In 2015/16, Herediano finished second in Group B behind Tigres. A year earlier, the Florenses advanced to the final four after winning a quarterfinal series against Olimpia (agg: 3-1). In the semifinals, Herediano became the last team to beat eventual two-time champion Club America, winning the opener 3-0, only to fall 6-0 in the second leg. Midfielders Oscar Esteban Granados (two career Champions League goals) and Randall Azofeifa (one career Champions League goal) were named to Costa Rica’s 23-man roster for the Copa American Centenario.
