Miami, FL – Concacaf has conducted the official draw for the 2024/25 Concacaf W Champions Cup. The inaugural edition of the Confederation’s annual tournament, which will be played from August 2024 to May 2025, includes some of the best women’s clubs from North America, Central America, and the Caribbean. 

The Concacaf W Champions Cup is also the sole path through which Concacaf clubs can qualify for the new FIFA Women’s Club World Cup. FIFA recently announced that the first edition will feature 16 clubs and be played between January and February 2026.

Sports anchor Adriana Monsalve hosted the live event in Miami, FL, which also included Concacaf President and FIFA Vice President Victor Montagliani and players Lixy Rodríguez (Costa Rica) and Kathryn Williamson (USA). 

President Montagliani unveiled the Concacaf W Champions Cup brand and anthem. The selected colors represent the grit and intensity of this competition, while the logo evokes the silhouette of the trophy, the ultimate prize, and includes a Triple C in the center, the initials of the Concacaf Champions Cup

The brand essence is "For Greatness," as our clubs and players always strive to be the best they can be, giving everything and maximizing the power of their togetherness. The anthem, also named "For Greatness,” was composed by the renowned musician and producer Matt Clifford.
