The 59th edition of the Concacaf Champions Cup, the region's premier men's club competition, will be played between February and June 2024. The annual tournament, comprised of five direct elimination rounds and the 27 best clubs from North America, Central America and the Caribbean, crowns the Confederation's club champion and is the sole qualification route for the region's clubs to the new and expanded FIFA Club World Cup.
This will mark the eighth time Houston has competed in the regional tournament, and the first time since 2019 when the Dynamo defeated Guatemalan side CD Guastatoya in the Round of 16 before falling to Mexican powerhouse Tigres UANL in the Quarterfinals. Houston’s best finishes in the competition came in 2007 and 2008 when the Dynamo advanced to the Semifinals.
