The Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF) today unveiled the dates and kickoff times for the Round of 16 matches of the 2019 Scotiabank CONCACAF Champions League. Atlanta United, which drew C.S. Herediano in the opening round, will travel to Costa Rica for the first leg on Thursday, Feb.21 (10:00 p.m. EST) with the return leg scheduled to be played at Fifth Third Bank Stadium in Kennesaw on Thursday, Feb. 28 (8:00 p.m. EST).

C.S. Herediano, from the city of Heredia, Costa Rica, plays its home matches at Estadio Eladio Rosabal Cordero. One of two teams from Costa Rica in the SCCL, Herediano qualified for this year’s tournament after winning the 2018 CONCACAF League, an annual competition between teams from Central America and the Caribbean. The club has qualified for SCCL seven times, with its best performance coming in 2015 when it advanced to the semifinals and lost to Mexican side Club América. Herediano has won the Costa Rican Primera División 26 times, the third-most in the league’s history.

The complete Champions League bracket is available here. Fans will be able to follow all the action through the Confederation’s partner networks, including Univision Deportes (United States), Yahoo Sports (United States), Fox Sports Latin America (Mexico & Central America), Flow Sports (Caribbean) and other local partners. For other territories, the event will be available on CONCACAF GO (subject to territory restrictions).

The 2019 edition of the Scotiabank CONCACAF Champions League will be the second to feature the recently developed, action-packed knockout style competition. The home-and-away format will demand the highest level of performance from the participating clubs from the first kickoff, resulting in a quickly evolving competition with the Round of 16 matches in February, quarterfinal matches in March, followed by the semifinals and finals in April and May.
