MONTEGO BAY, Jamaica -- Since the first edition in 1989, the Caribbean Cup has served as the region’s championship for national teams.  On most occasions, but not always, it also doubles as a qualifying tournament for the CONCACAF Gold Cup.

The Caribbean Cup has been contested on 17 previous occasions with Trinidad & Tobago winning a record eight titles, followed by Jamaica with five, while Haiti, Martinique and Cuba have lifted the trophy once apiece.  Final round play in the 1990 competition was not completed due to political unrest and a tropical storm in host country Trinidad & Tobago. 

Jamaica will host/co-host the finals for the sixth time in 2014 as Montego Bay will welcome the Caribbean’s best players and teams to the Montego Bay Sports Complex, November 11-18, 2014.
