Based on the Concacaf Club Rankings, where Philadelphia Union rank No. 5, they are been put into Pot 1 which means the Boys in Blue will face off against one of the following teams in Round One:
Vancouver Whitecaps FC, Deportivo Saprissa, St. Louis CITY SC, CS Herediano, Comunicaciones FC, CA Independiente, Cavalry FC, Forge FC, Real Estelí FC, Moca FC and Cavalier FC.
Philadelphia Union earned its place in the 2024 Concacaf Champions Cup when it defeated CF Monterrey in the Leagues Cup Third Place Match earlier this year.
The draw will begin by drawing a sphere from Pot 1, followed by a sphere from Pot A, to determine the club's bracket position. This procedure will be repeated for the remaining seven spheres in Pot 1, always using the available bracket positions in Pot A.
After all the spheres from Pot 1 and Pot A have been drawn, the draw for clubs in Pot 2 will begin. Similarly, a sphere from Pot 2 will be drawn, followed by a sphere from Pot B to determine the club's bracket position.
The draw will conclude once all spheres have been drawn and all clubs have been assigned a bracket position.
The 59th edition of the Concacaf Champions Cup, the region's premier men's club competition, will be played between February and June 2024. The annual tournament, comprised of five direct elimination rounds and the best clubs from North America, Central America, and the Caribbean, crowns the Confederation's club champion and is the sole qualification route for the region's clubs to the new and expanded FIFA Club World Cup.
The competition's first four rounds (Round One, Round of 16, Quarterfinals, and Semifinals), all include home and away play, while the Final is played as a single-leg match.
