Just over seven months after the competition’s initial postponement due to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, CONCACAF has announced that they intend on resuming the CONCACAF Champions League in December following the MLS’s season completion, albeit with some modifications due to the circumstances.

CONCACAF’s current plan is to host the remainder of the tournament in a regional bubble, likely in the Southern U.S. According to SI.com, “both semifinals and then the final will be a single game, meaning the entire event will comprise seven games played across three rounds. It could be accomplished in about a week.”

New York City FC are currently in the quarterfinals of the tournament where they are currently one goal down on aggregate to Mexican club Tigres. The home leg of the quarterfinal — which was played on March 11 at Red Bull Arena — was the last game to be played before the national sports shutdown on March 12.

We will keep you posted with any and all updates related to the CCL restart as they become available.
