Concacaf League R16 matches in Honduras to be played behind closed doors

Scotiabank Concacaf League

The Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football (Concacaf) announced that the upcoming Round of 16 home matches of Honduran clubs CD Olimpia and FC Motagua, in the 2019 Scotiabank Concacaf League, will need to be played at the Olympic Stadium in San Pedro Sula, behind closed doors.

The decision, aimed at guaranteeing the safety of the participating clubs, officials and fans, has been taken by the Concacaf Council following the incidents and serious breaches of security that took place on Saturday, August 17th, prior to a domestic league match between the two Honduran clubs that was scheduled to be played in the Tiburcio Carías Andino Stadium in Tegucigalpa.

The time and date for the two Round of 16 Scotiabank Concacaf League matches in Honduras will remain as originally scheduled. The complete calendar is available below.
