2010–11 CONCACAF Champions League Championship Round

The 2010–11 CONCACAF Champions League Championship Round was played from February to April 2011. A total of eight teams qualified for the Championship Round from the Group Stage.

The championship round draw was conducted on November 1, 2010, at the CONCACAF headquarters in New York City.[1] In the quarterfinals, the group winners were assured of playing the second leg at home, and were drawn against the group runners-up, with the only restriction being that they could not face the same team that it played in the Group Stage (and thus they may face a team from the same association).

The championship round was played in knockout format. Each tie was played over two legs, and the away goals rule would be used, but not after a tie enters extra time, and so a tie would be decided by penalty shootout if the aggregate score is level after extra time.[2]
