Five-time Concacaf champions and two-time SCCL winners Pachuca are back in the tournament for a second straight season after qualifying as 2022 Liga MX Apertura champions. Pachuca were Concacaf Champions Cup winners in 2002, 2007 and 2008 and SCCL winners in 2009-10 and 2016-17.
As 2022 Liga MX Apertura runners-up, Toluca have qualified for their first Concacaf Champions League since the 2019 edition. Toluca were winners of the Concacaf Champions Cup in 1968 and 2003 and runners-up in the 2013-14 SCCL.
No team is more decorated in the Concacaf region than seven-time champions Club America, who qualified as one of the top two Liga MX teams in aggregate points over the 2022 Apertura and 2023 Clausura. Club America claimed the Concacaf Champions Cup in 1977, 1987, 1990, 1992 and 2006 and were SCCL winners in 2014-15 and 2015-16.
