CONCACAF has been notified by South East FC that the club has been forced to withdraw from the 2021 Flow CONCACAF Caribbean Club Championship (FCCCC), due to travel challenges associated with the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Dominica club and CONCACAF made every effort possible but unfortunately, the club would not have arrived in time in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, to comply with all the required health and safety protocols.

The groups are as follows:
Group A: O&M FC (DOM), Flames United SC (SMA) and Inter Moengo Tapoe (SUR),
Group B: Delfines del Este (DOM), SV Real Rincon (BOE) and Metropolitan (PUR)
Group C: Don Bosco FC (HAI), AS Samaritaine (MTQ) and AS Gosier (GLP)
Group D: Cavaly AS (HAI), RKSV Scherpenheuvel (CUW), Olympique de Cayenne (GUF) and Hope International (VIN)
Covid-19 testing update
CONCACAF has developed robust COVID-19 protocols which all competing clubs are following. All participants (players, coaches, traveling staff and match officials) are required to have multiple COVID-19 tests prior and during the competition.
As part of the on-arrival tests carried out on the Group A and B delegations, one player from Inter Moengo Tapoe has tested positive. The individual is isolating and following all relevant CONCACAF and local public health guidelines. CONCACAF is also ensuring the individual and his club are being provided with the necessary support.
Today’s Group A and B matches will be played as scheduled.
In the event of any new positive COVID-19 case(s) during the tournament, CONCACAF will publish a COVID-19 update.
