Together with the newly launched Caribbean Cup Shield tier 2 competition, which features 12 clubs from Caribbean nations with leagues that are yet to reach standards of full professionalization, the new regional qualifying championships will serve as the Caribbean qualifying tournament for the Scotiabank CONCACAF League and the Scotiabank CONCACAF Champions League, and open the door for wider participation of Caribbean clubs in Confederation championships.

The winner of the 2018 CONCACAF Caribbean Club Championship will qualify directly to the 2019 Scotiabank CONCACAF Champions League, while the runner-up and third place finishers will qualify for the 2018 Scotiabank CONCACAF League.

The fourth-place finisher of the Caribbean Club Championship will face the winner of the Caribbean Club Shield in a playoff match to determine the third club that will represent the Caribbean in the 2018 Scotiabank CONCACAF League, as long as the tier 2 champion complies with the minimum CONCACAF Club Licensing requirements for the CONCACAF League.
