The fifth CONCACAF Champions League kicks-off Tuesday when two-time defending champion Monterrey (Mexico) hosts Chorrillo FC (Panama) in the first of two games that evening.
In the second game, Herediano (Costa Rica) welcomes 2010-11 runner-up Real Salt Lake (USA) to the Estadio Nacional in San Jose.
On Wednesday, Aguila (El Salvador) travels north to make its tournament debut against Toronto FC (Canada), while visiting Tigres UANL (Mexico) takes on Real Esteli (Nicaragua) and Isidro Metapan (El Salvador) entertains the Puerto Rico Islanders (Puerto Rico) in a rematch of last year’s preliminary round pairing.
The first week of CCL action concludes with a Thursday triple-header: W Connection (Trinidad & Tobago) v Xelaju (Guatemala); Olimpia (Honduras) v FAS (El Salvador) in San Pedro Sula; and the Seattle Sounders (USA) v Caledonia AIA (Trinidad & Tobago).
After a nearly three-week break, the second week of CCL play will take place Aug. 21-23.
