2011–12 CONCACAF Champions League Championship Round

The 2011–12 CONCACAF Champions League Championship Round was played from March to April 2012. A total of eight teams qualified for the Championship Round: the four group winners and the four group runners-up from the Group Stage.

The draw for the Championship Round was held on November 8, 2011, at the CONCACAF headquarters in New York City.[1] In the quarter-finals, 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 they played in the Group Stage (and thus they could face a team from the same association).[2]

The championship round was played in knockout format. Each tie was played over two legs, and the away goals rule was used, but not after a tie entered extra time; a penalty shoot-out was thus used if the aggregate score was level after extra time.[2]
