CONCACAF tightens stadium standards for 2009

NEW YORK -- Champions League clubs without a suitable stadium must fix it or find another in their country or risk being replaced for next year's tournament, CONCACAF said Friday.

Calling this year's inaugural league a success, the executive committee of the North, Central American and Caribbean confederation decided Friday to tighten venue standards after allowing some teams to host games without adequate power supply, floodlighting or locker rooms.

The committee also ruled on how to replace disqualified teams.

If the disqualified club is one of the three Caribbean teams advancing from a qualifying tournament, then the fourth-place finisher would be promoted. If any of the 12 qualified Central American teams are precluded, it would be supplanted by a club from Honduras based on results from this year's Champions League.

The group stage of this season's league will be completed on Nov. 26, followed by a draw on Dec. 10 for February's quarterfinals, when the four group winners will be paired against the group runners-up.
