Club America, CONCACAF Kings.
Club America, the Mexico City based soccer team, have won the 2014/2015 Scotiabank CONCACAF Champions League with a spectacular 4-2 win in Montreal, Canada. This is Club America's sixth title as CONCACAF (The Confederation of North, Central America and the Caribbean Football Association) champions.
The fabled Mexicas side tied the first leg of the cup final 1-1 at the Azteca Stadium in Mexico City. The return leg at Montreal's Olympic Stadium saw the Mexican giants lift the trophy after trailing 1-0 at the half to the Montreal Impact in front of a sellout crowd.
The Montreal Impact set a new Canadian soccer attendance record at the Olympic Stadium in front of 61,004 fans. The championship rounds saw total attendance increase to 393,216 fans attending 14 matches, averaging more than 28,000 per game.
“The Scotiabank CONCACAF Champions League continues its growth at an exponential rate thanks to the increasing support of our fans, our teams, our leagues and our commercial and TV partners,” said CONCACAF President Jeffrey Webb. “We would like to thank all of them for their passion and commitment to the game and to our premier competition.”
Television ratings have also been on the rise this season. The first leg of the Finals in Mexico averaged 1,763,000 viewers across three networks in the United States: UniMas, UDN and Fox Sports 2.
With its triumph in the Finals, Club America has now earned the right to represent CONCACAF at the FIFA World Club, to be played this December in Japan.
