The Digicel Caribbean Championships, formerly known as the Digicel Caribbean Cup, started in May 2004 when Digicel announced its sponsorship of the games.
In partnership with the CFU and 14 federations across the region, the tournament has grown to be the largest world-class football tournament in the Caribbean on par with other international tournaments. In 2006/7, Haiti emerged as the champions.
The DCC finals are set to be held in Jamaica in December.
