2024 Concacaf Champions Cup Round One
2024 Concacaf Champions Cup Round One

The Concacaf Champions Cup 59th edition, which has been revamped to include 27 of the best clubs from North America, Central America, and the Caribbean and five rounds, crowns the Confederation's club champion and is the sole qualification route for the region's clubs to the new and expanded FIFA Club World Cup. The tournament’s champion will also receive USD $5m+ in financial distributions.

The winner of the home-and-away series is determined by aggregate goals scored. This means that whoever scores more goals in the two games will advance to the next round. If aggregate goals are equal, team with more away goals scored will advance. If away goals are also equal, the game is decided by an immediate penalty shoot-out, with no extra time played.

Following the home-and-away series, the aggregate score winner in each Round One matchup will advance to the Round of 16.
