2019 Caribbean Club Championship
The 2019 Caribbean Club Championship was the 21st edition of the Caribbean Club Championship (also known as the CFU Club Championship), the first-tier annual international club football competition in the Caribbean region, held amongst clubs whose football associations are affiliated with the Caribbean Football Union (CFU), a sub-confederation of CONCACAF. The tournament was played in Jamaica between 12–19 May 2019.

Atlético Pantoja were the title holders, but did not compete in this season's CONCACAF Caribbean Club Championship. Portmore United were crowned Caribbean club champions for the second time and qualified for the 2020 CONCACAF Champions League. Runners-up Waterhouse and third place Capoise qualified for the 2019 CONCACAF League, but fourth-placed Real Hope lost to 2019 Caribbean Club Shield winners Robinhood in a playoff and failed to qualify for the CONCACAF League.
Among the 31 CFU member associations, four of them were classified as professional leagues and each may enter two teams in the CONCACAF Caribbean Club Championship. However, two associations were not allowed to enter this season, and as a result, only four teams from two associations entered the 2019 CONCACAF Caribbean Club Championship (officially the 2019 Flow CONCACAF Caribbean Club Championship for sponsorship reasons).
