NEW YORK, New York - CONCACAF and Digicel announced today that the final of the Digicel Caribbean Cup, which will be played on Sunday, Dec. 5, in Martinique, 6 p.m. ET, will be streamed online for free on CONCACAF TV at www.concacaf.com.

Group play in the competition concluded Wednesday, setting up Friday's semifinal doubleheader at the Stade Pierre Aliker in Dillon. In the opener, Group H winner Cuba, faces Group I runner-up Guadeloupe. Group I champion Jamaica will meet Grenada, the Group H second-place finisher, to close the evening.

The four semifinalists have already qualified for the 2011 CONCACAF Gold Cup, the Confederation's biennial championship for national teams.

The winners will square-off in Sunday's final to crown a 15th all-time champion.

"CONCACAF is delighted to partner with Digicel on the live streaming of the Caribbean's premier football competition," said CONCACAF Deputy General Secretary Italo Zanzi. "This service will allow fans worldwide to enjoy the culmination of a fantastic tournament and watch a very worthy champion be crowned."

Coincidentally, all four of this year's semifinalists advanced to the same stage of the 2008 competition.

"Cuba, Grenada, Guadeloupe and Jamaica each deserve to be in the semifinals and we are thrilled to provide them with an additional platform to be seen throughout the world," said Digicel Group Marketing Director, Kieran Foley. "The tournament has been a success on many fronts and Digicel is proud to work with CONCACAF on streaming what promises to be a great evening for Caribbean sport."

Jamaica, searching for its fifth Caribbean championship, defeated Grenada 2-0 in the last final played two years ago at home in Kingston. Though Cuba, Grenada and Guadeloupe have never lifted the regional trophy, they have each qualified for the CONCACAF Gold Cup at least once.

Digicel announced its initial four year sponsorship of the Digicel Caribbean Cup in May 2004 and, in June 2007, extended its contract until 2011. Digicel has been involved in a wide range of football initiatives designed to support the development of football in the Caribbean and Central America. Digicel, which has operations in 32 countries worldwide, sponsors 17 Football Federations and Leagues, as well as the Digicel Kick Start Clinics and the Digicel Caribbean Cup.
