Tuesday June 2nd, 2015

CONCACAF conducted the draw for its 2015–16 Champions League on Friday night, pairing the 24 teams that will compete in the federation's top tournament.

The teams are placed in eight groups of three, with the winner of each group advancing to the quarterfinals. The group stage will begin in August.

A Mexican club has won every tournament since 2006 and no MLS team has won since the L.A. Galaxy in 2000. 

Five MLS teams will compete in this edition of the Champions League—the Seattle Sounders, Vancouver Whitecaps, Galaxy, D.C. United and Real Salt Lake. The Sounders and Whitecaps were both drawn into Group F, along with Honduran side Olimpia.
