All 26 teams will play in Orlando. 16 consecutive days of matches to begin.
- West: 3 groups of 4 teams
- East: two groups of 4 teams, one group of 6 teams (I know makes not sense and will ultimately screw us)
- "Seeded teams"--Toronto, Atlanta, Orlando (Host, placed in 6-team group), LAFC, Seattle, RSL
- All teams play 3 group stage games which count toward regular season standings
- Top 2 in each group plus 4 best third place finishers (regardless of conference) advance to round of 16
- Winner gets champions league birth
Edit: Draw is tomorrow for group stage.
