Harbour View's Under-13 football team will be one of 16 amateur teams from 10 countries across the CONCACAF region to compete in the Scotiabank CONCACAF U-13 Champions League tournament taking place in Mexico City, from today through July 30 at the Universidad Intercontinental.

Harbour View's players will be among 256 boys to compete in the championships.

This is the second edition of the tournament that invites national football associations to select their top U-13 club teams to represent their country at an international level.

The tournament is a round-robin format with all teams guaranteed three games in the group stage followed by quarter-finals, semi-finals and finals.

Jamaica will play in Group A with teams from Mexico, Nicaragua, and Trinidad and Tobago.

"Scotiabank is proud to support the CONCACAF Under-13 tournament again this year," said Richard Mainella, vice-president marketing, Scotiabank Mexico.

"Our sponsorship will continue to focus on bringing opportunities to young people and building strong communities through sport, by teaching the importance of teamwork, self-confidence and leadership skills.

"We would like to thank Scotiabank for their continued support in spearheading the second edition of the Scotiabank CONCACAF Under-13 Champions League," said CONCACAF General Secretary Philippe Moggio.

"This tournament, which truly provides a unique pan-regional platform, captures the imagination of youth leagues within CONCACAF and demonstrates the shared commitment of Scotiabank and the Confederation to future generations of our sport."

In December 2014, Scotiabank proudly announced a partnership with CONCACAF, naming Scotiabank as the official bank of CONCACAF and the league's first official partner.
