Real Salt Lake
has been a part of the Champions League, but this time the format of the tournament is very different so I thought it might be nice to get up to date on the changes and get ready for the tournament.

The draw will be conducted in such a way as to ensure that two or moreteams from the same association will not play in the same Group and the four USA and four Mexican Teams will be drawn into separate Groups.
Each group will have 3 teams that will play each other twice once at home and once on the road, Real Salt Lake was drawn into Group 2 with, Tauro FC of Panama and Herediano of Costa Rica and our group schedule is:
Tuesday, July 31st - Real Salt Lake at CS Herediano - 8pm MT
Tuesday, August 21st - Tauro FC at Real Salt Lake - 8pm MT
Thursday, August 30th CS Herediano at Tauro FC - 6pm MT
Tuesday, September 18th Real Salt Lake at Tauro FC - 6pm ...
