Draw

The draw for the group stage was held on June 1, 2015, 20:00 EDT (UTC−4), at the New World Center in Miami Beach, Florida.[2]

The 24 teams were drawn into eight groups of three, with each group containing one team from each of the three pots. In a change from previous draws, teams from the same association (excluding "wildcard" teams which replace a team from another association) were placed in the same pot such that they could not be drawn with each other in the group stage:[3]

  • Pot 1 contained two teams from El Salvador, one team each from Canada, Nicaragua, and Belize, and three teams from the Caribbean.
  • Pot 2 contained two teams each from Costa Rica, Honduras, Guatemala, and Panama.
  • Pot 3 contained four teams each from Mexico and the United States.

Seeding

The following were the group stage seeding of the 24 teams which qualified for the Champions League:

Pot 1
Isidro Metapán Santa Tecla Vancouver Whitecaps FC Walter Ferretti
Verdes Central W Connection Montego Bay United
Pot 2
Saprissa Herediano Olimpia Motagua
Comunicaciones Municipal Árabe Unido San Francisco
Pot 3
América Santos Laguna UANL Querétaro
LA Galaxy Seattle Sounders FC D.C. United Real Salt Lake

Format

In the group stage, each group was played on a home-and-away round-robin basis. The winners of each group advanced to the knockout stage.

Tiebreakers

The teams were ranked according to points (3 points for a win, 1 point for a draw, 0 points for a loss). If tied on points, tiebreakers would be applied in the following order (Regulations Page 8, Tie-Breaker Procedures):[1]

  1. Greater number of points earned in matches between the teams concerned;
  2. Greater goal difference in matches between the teams concerned;
  3. Greater number of goals scored away from home in matches between the teams concerned;
  4. Greater goal difference in all group matches;
  5. Greater number of goals scored in group matches;
  6. Greater number of goals scored away in all group matches;
  7. Drawing of lots.
