2015 Belizean Opening champion Police United FC edged 2016 Closing champion Belmopan Bandits for a place in the 2016/17 Scotiabank CONCACAF Champions League by a single point, 40-39, on the regular-season, combined-points rule. Police United captured the Opening title by overcoming Verdes FC in the final, 1-0 on aggregate. Orlando Jimenez’s goal in the first leg – off a pass by his brother Danny — proved to be the difference. Members of the first-time champion taking home post-season honors were: Jamie Brooks (Best Goalkeeper), Darien Myers (Best Young Player) and Trevor Lennon (Playoffs MVP). Police United will be the second team from Belize to participate in the Champions League after Verdes FC (2009/10, 2015/16).
