Central won the tournament by defeating fellow Trinidadian side W Connection in the final. Both teams qualified for the Champions League, along with Montego Bay United of Jamaica, who defeated Haitian side Don Bosco in the third place game.

The first round was held in April 2015 at sites in Haiti, Guyana, and Trinidad and Tobago. The final round was played in May 2015 in Trinidad and Tobago.

Teams

The tournament was open to all league champions and runners-up from each of the 31 CFU member associations (or cup winners if the league was not played), once their competition ended on or before the end of 2014.

A total of 15 teams from 9 CFU associations entered the competition, as they met the registration and fee payment deadline of January 7, 2015. This is the first CFU Club Championship to feature a team from the Bahamas, with Lyford Cay Dragons as their entrant.

There are no defending champions as no final was played in 2014.

First round

In the first round, the 15 teams were divided into three groups of four and one group of three, with each group containing at least two league champions. Each group was played on a round-robin basis, hosted by one of the teams at a centralized venue. The winners of each group advanced to the semi-finals.
