Ahead of the CONCACAF Champions League (which apparently is now the Scotiabank CONCACAF Champions League) quarterfinal matches, the Alajuelense website is saying that the officials for the February 26 match with D.C. United are Roberto Garcia as referee, with Marcos Quintero and Jose Luis Camargo as linesmen.

The Liga MX trio have had some experience in international competitions, as Garcia and Camargo were part of the officiating crew for the 2013 U-20 World Cup Final between France and Turkey, and they also worked the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. Quintero worked the 2014 World Cup, and was linesman when Germany throttled Brazil in the semifinals (Mark Geiger was part of this crew). Quintero and Garcia have officiated some higher visibility games in the region too, notably the 2013 CONCACAF Champions League Finals between Santos Laguna and Monterrey, and were two thirds of the officiating team when the United States beat Panama 2-0 in World Cup Qualifiers in Seattle in 2013.

So, now that you know as much as a cursory glance of what the internet says will be the officials for D.C. United's first game of consequence in 2015, it kind of looks like a good draw. But it's CONCACAF, so you never know, right?
