The Puerto Rico Islanders will face W Connection of Trinidad, while Antigua Barracuda FC takes on Caledonia AIA in the June 19 semifinals of the Caribbean Club Champions Cup to determine two of the three remaining berths in the CONCACAF Champions League.

The Caribbean Football Union announced its plans Tuesday for the final stage of its club championship in Marabella, Trinidad, pitting the two second-round group winners against the runners-up from the opposite group.

The winners will face off two days later to determine the Caribbean champion, with the losers playing one another in the consolation match immediately prior to determine third place and the last berth in the Champions League.

The Islanders are seeking a third straight CFU title with W Connection trying for a fifth crown and first since 2009.

Based on Tuesday's Champions League draw, the Caribbean club winner will play the Seattle Sounders FC and Marathon of Honduras in Group 4. The runner-up will face Xelaju of Guatemala and Chivas de Guadalajara in Group 8, while the third-place team will go into Group 5 with the LA Galaxy and Isidro Metapan of El Salvador.
