The 2024 CONCACAF Caribbean Cup will kick off with a Group Stage comprised of two groups of five clubs each. In this first round, clubs will play every club in their group once, for a total of four matches per club (two at home and two away), in the five scheduled weeks.

Group Stage Week 1: August 20-22, 2024

After the Group Stage, the first and second-place finishers in each group will advance to the Knockout Stage. The Knockout Stage will include home-and-away play, starting with the Semifinals, followed by the Third Place and Final, where the new champion of the Caribbean will be crowned.
