Starting August 2, 2016, fútbol aficionados will be able to enjoy live coverage of the 24 participating teams battling to become the CONCACAF champion.

"We are very excited to kick off another season of the Scotiabank CONCACAF Champions League," said CONCACAF President Victor Montagliani. "As the fan base of the Confederation's premier club competition continues growing, we are proud to count on Univision to expand the reach of the tournament, while ensuring that millions of soccer fans enjoy and experience the game through multiple platforms."

"As we make inroads to solidifying our position as the go-to destination for soccer fans, the CONCACAF Champions League continues to be an important tournament for true fútbol aficionados,” said Juan Carlos Rodriguez, President of Univision Deportes. “At Univision Deportes we strive to bring fans year-round coverage of the teams, leagues and tournaments that matter most to them.”
