The 1973 CONCACAF Champions' Cup was the 9th edition of the annual international club football competition held in the CONCACAF region (North America, Central America and the Caribbean), the CONCACAF Champions' Cup. It determined that year's club champion of association football in the CONCACAF region.
The tournament was played by 16 teams of 9 countries from 1 June till 3 August 1973 with the matches in the tournament played under the home/away match
The teams were split in 3 zones (North American, Central American and Caribbean), each one qualifying the winner to the final tournament. As no clubs entered in the North American section, the winner of the two remaining zones gained the qualification to the final, but both Central American teams withdrew; therefore the final was scratched and the Caribbean winner, SV Transvaal from Suriname, won the tournament, and became for the first time CONCACAF champion.
