Tigres UANL’s wait for CONCACAF Champions League glory ended with Tigres UANL winning their first title at the expense of Los Angeles FC in the final.

After Tuesday’s victory, the club is the CONCACAF champions for the first time in their history.

Thanks to Tuesday’s come-from-behind 2-1 win over LAFC, the Tigers finally got their hands on the Champions League trophy.

Tigres, who were runners-up in 2016, 2017 and 2019, has been eluded by CONCACAF Champions League silverware.

At Exploria Stadium in Orlando, where Bob Bradley’s side is looking to become the first MLS team to win the continental tournament in its new format, LA Galaxy won the CONCACAF Champions Cup in 2000, LAFC was bidding to make history.

“At last! It is deserved for the institution… I always wanted to win the CONCACAF Champions League,” Gignac said afterwards. “Today it’s Tigres’ turn.”

“It’s for all the people back in Monterrey working in the offices. This is for the people in Monterrey.”

Writing about football is one of my favorite things to do. As a football writer, I love the rush of being in the stadium on game day and watching all the action live. It's like no other feeling for me. I'm passionate about writing about it, but until recently I've been doing it as a hobby rather than a profession.
