Regular season play pauses
  • Both MLS and Liga MX will pause their respective seasons for one month during the summer to play Leagues Cup games
  • All MLS clubs will participate
  • All Liga MX clubs will participate

 

Well, at least RBA will have good attendance when we play Mexican teams.

It'll be a real riot!

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

I hate this, can't believe we are gonna waste a whole month for this shit. Also probably means we get more midweek regular season games too to make up for the month break.

How many Liga MX fans are really gonna suddenly start following their local MLS team because of this? Seems like nothing more than a money grab for Mexico fans to see their team in an MLS stadium.

We'll probably get knocked out early and basically have a whole month off anyway lols

Heard that Hamlett sent an email to Kaku if he wants to comeback in 2023.

Curious as to how many teams will field their MLS Reserve League or USL team for this and if MLS will allow it.

THREE CCL spots come out of this, while only one comes out of the US Open Cup.

It's better than the MLS-Liga MX merger that was rumored, but not by much.

I can't believe the expanded this tournament instead of killing it. It's amazing scrolling through Twitter while these games are on. You have guys left and right who literally get paid to cover the league debating why they should even care. So pissed they're actually going to derail the MLS season for it.

What's there not to believe? It's a pure money grab to fleece American-based Mexican fans. Let's get ready for that famous chant!

I dont have a problem with this tournament. It is another way into the Concacaf Champions League. Problem with this is however if we plan to maintain a 34 game season and playoffs that end by December our season would have to begin in the beginning of February. Add the US Open Cup and will be playing nearly 50 matches a year.

Given it's woven into the CCL, this is here to stay.  Guessing that it will probably gain more quotas for the CCL round of 16 over time.

Given enough money, teams will take it seriously.

Maybe the humiliation our teams will experience will result in the grabbed money being spent on better players.

Only if those better players are "the right fit".
