CCL records by country, team

With the Women's Olympic Qualifying tournament having come and gone (congrats, ladies, on qualifying for London) the next item on the Canadian soccer agenda is a late February friendly with Armenia.

But some fans, particularly those in Toronto, will be looking past that match and forward to the CONCACAF Champions League quarter finals. I may be alone in this, but I find the modern incarnation of the tournament, since 2008, to be one of the most exciting and important developments in the region.

As a means of building up participation, I offer you the following tables, ranking the performance of countries in the tournament over the last 4 editions, as well as the top 20 teams, each measured by points earned (3 per win, 1 per draw) per game.

For once I'll provide the stats without comment:
