Eight clubs from five countries remain in competition for regional club championship; knockout round begins February 21

Miami (Wednesday, October 26, 2016) – The Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF) released today the schedule for the quarterfinals of the 2016/17 edition of the Scotiabank CONCACAF Champions League, the region’s premier competition for clubs.

The quarterfinal round will begin the evening of Tuesday, February 21, with a clash of decorated Confederation champions, when Mexican side and four-time CONCACAF Champion, CF Pachuca, visits three-time CONCACAF Champion, Deportivo Saprissa, in San Jose, at 10:00 pm ET (9:00 PM local).  

The following day, Wednesday, February 22, will feature two intra-league clashes, as Vancouver Whitecaps FC travels to the east coast to face the New York Red Bulls, at 8:00 pm ET, followed by a Liga MX battle between Tigres UANL and Pumas UNAM, in Monterrey, at 10:00 pm ET (9:00 pm local). 

The first leg of the quarterfinals culminates on Thursday, February 23, when 2016 US Open Cup and MLS Supporter Shield holder, FC Dallas, hosts Panamanian side CD Arabe Unido, at 8:00 pm ET (7:00 pm local). 

The second legs of the quarterfinals will take place between February 28 and March 2nd, beginning with CF Pachuca against Deportivo Saprissa, at 10:00 pm ET (9:00 pm local), on Tuesday. 

Wednesday will feature two matches -- CD Arabe Unido will host FC Dallas, in Panama City at 8:00 pm ET (8:00 pm local) and Pumas UNAM will face Tigres UANL, in Mexico City, at 10:00 pm ET (9:00 PM local). 

The quarterfinals wrap up in Cascadia, when top-ranked Vancouver Whitecaps FC hosts the return leg of its series versus the New York Red Bulls at BC Place, at 10:00 pm ET (7:00 pm local). 

Twenty-four clubs from across the Confederation began the quest for the crown in this season’s Champions League group phase, played between August and October, with the top team from each of the eight three-team groups advancing to the knockout round.

Following the completion of group play, the eight group-topping teams were re-seeded 1-8, based on the number of points they achieved in the group stage, and using goal difference as the tie-breaker among teams tied with the same amount of points. In the case of seventh-place FC Dallas and eight-place New York Red Bulls, which both finished on 8 points with a plus-4 goal differential, goals scored in group play became the tie-breaker.
