Wales would be making their second successive appearance in the competition.

Last year in the Dominican Republic, they finished bottom of Group A as they suffered three defeats in as many matches.

This year’s competition has added one more team, making the tally 13 teams this year divided into four groups; one group of four and three groups containing three teams.

Wales are one of the fortunate teams drawn in a group of three; Group B, where they will face the champions of Guadeloupe, Moulien FC and Bonaire league champions Real Rincon who finished third in last year’s Concacaf Club Shield competition, on April 5th and 9th respectively.

The top two teams advance to the quarterfinal stage of the competition which culminates on April 15th.
