CONCACAF has announced the dates for the 2020 Scotiabank CONCACAF League (SCL) Play-in matches. The two single leg games that will determine the last two SCL clubs participating in the 2021 Scotiabank CONCACAF Champions League (SCCL) will be played December 8-10, 2020.
The SCL qualifies six teams to the SCCL. In the original format, the winning quarterfinalists and the two best losing quarterfinalists based on performance in the SCL would qualify. However, for this edition only, CONCACAF has altered the qualification from the SCL to account for the reformatting of the competition, in particular the reduced number of matches.
The four SCL Quarterfinal winners will continue to qualify directly to the Scotiabank CONCACAF Champions League for the 2021 edition. The four losing SCL Quarterfinalists will compete in single leg play-in games with the two winners qualifying for next year’s premier regional club competition.
The pairings for the play-in matches will be determined by the tournament bracket, which can be found below. The highest ranked club in each pairing, based on the CONCACAF Club Rankings, will host each match.
In order to crown the champions of 2020 SCL, the Semifinals and Final of this competition will be played in 2021. Further details on dates will be communicated in due course.
