CCL 2013-14 Qualifiers: Blink and you’ll miss them

Which is the quickest path to the CONCACAF Champions League? The correct answer remains the Canadian Championship, as the Voyageurs’ Cup winner will claim their country’s sole berth after all of four matches. The Caribbean Football Union (CFU) apparently decided to compete for that particular honor, with the ongoing CFU …

CONCACAF Expansion: How Much Could Change?

Back in February, on the eve of the Hexagonal, I briefly addressed news from the previous week involving a meeting between CONCACAF President Jeffrey Webb and the Francophone associate members.

CCL 2011-12 Qualifiers: Canadian Final Set, Guatemalan Semis Set to Begin

I missed out on watching Toronto FC take care of business with a second win over FC Edmonton, taking the series 4-0 on aggregate. But the second match of the night, between the Vancouver Whitecaps and the Montreal Impact, had more excitement than all the games of last year’s Canadian …

CCL 2011-12 Qualifiers: Guatemala Catches Up

Both quarterfinal series in Guatemala’s Clausura finished over the weekend. Comunicaciones comfortably thrashed Penarol la Mesilla 8-0 on aggregate, while Malacateco got the second-leg win that they needed to fend off Mictlan 3-2 on aggregate. So the semifinals are now set, with the seeded teams joining the party (first team …

CCL 2011-12 Qualifiers: Guatemalan Quarterfinals Set

About an hour ago, the Clausura regular season finished in Guatemala. Astonishingly, only one goal separates Municipal and Heredia at the top of the table: the two evenly split their two games in the season (1-0 wins for each) and finished with the same point total and same goal differential, …
