Getting Ready for Champions League

This week in New York has been focused on the launch of the CONCACAF Champions League.

Two major events will take place this week. The draw of the teams for the Preliminary and Group Phases of the Tournament and the development of the game schedule consistent with their league schedules, broadcasting requirements and sporting criteria.

Along with this we have outfitted our Television Studios with a new Virtual Set, which can be used for many future programming opportunities. The installation of it and testing with tools needed to do the draw has been a rigorous time with these processes overlapping on each other. Nonetheless, by tomorrow morning, Wednesday, we will be ready to produce the draw recorded in our studios and then send out to the media visual images of the draw and the result of the Preliminary pairings while we retire to two days of work to make the draw done for the group stages meet all the stakeholders requirements. That Round's results will be distributed on Monday after all broadcasters and league's have been able to confirm the value of our efforts.
