TWO-TIME former champions Harbour View FC will begin the hunt for their third hold on the Caribbean Football Union (CFU) Club Championship when the 2014 season kicks off today.

The 'Stars of the East', as they are otherwise known, will get the ball rolling when they tackle Suriname's Sporting Vereniging Notch at 7:30 pm, while Guyana's Alpha United FC will do battle against Defence Force FC of Trinidad & Tobago in the 5:30 pm kick-off.

The local-based club will host all games in Group Three at the Harbour View Stadium.

Meanwhile, Group One is set to be staged at Bayamon FC in Puerto Rico, while Group Two is slated for the home of Association Sportive de Mirebalais in Petion Ville, Haiti.

Another Jamaican outfit, Waterhouse FC, will feature in Group Two and will play their first game against Suriname's Inter Moengotapoe, also today.

The top-placed club in each of the three four-team groups progresses to the final round of qualifying.

Defending champions Valencia is the 13th team competing in the CFU Club competition and have been given a bye into the final round because of their performances in last season's CFU Club Championship and CONCACAF Champions League. They are set to feature in one of the two semi-final games.

The final round play-off is scheduled for April 16-21 at a venue yet to be announced. Two teams will advance to the 2014/15 CONCACAF Champions League.
