Would Leagues Cup matches be considered in "All Competitions"

22 August 2019 - 02:25 PM

Dan, hoping you can settle a debate.

 

Should Metro qualify for the 2020 Leagues Cup (and looking at the standings, that's a somewhat likely scenario), would games in the Leagues Cup be considered "friendlies" or "competitive matches?" 

 

I'm torn on it. For one, the tournament is a pure cash grab with all games held on US soil, unlike the old SuperLiga. But the same is true of the Gold Cup for the USMNT. I don't think you could rate it as high as a tournament like Copa Mecronorte, which was a home-and-away round robin. But I also don't think it stoops nearly as low as a Emirates Cup. 

 

Curious to know the board's thoughts on this.
