Hey, any particular reason why CONCACAF clubs would be more likely than clubs in other federations to drop out in the middle of a competition? Seems from the regulations like this is a problem...

Club withdrawals were quite common in the bad old days of the Champions' Cup, even to the point where CONCACAF had merely awarded the title to a team because of a withdrawal or a disqualification in the latter stages. (One example is Haiti's Violette in 1984.) And withdrawals from the CFU Club Championship occur at least once or twice a year.

No team has withdrawn from the CONCACAF Champions Cup proper in a long time (I don't recall offhand), but CONCACAF is making sure that there is a powerful disincentive for clubs to withdraw from the Champions League.
