Yep. I looked at the schedule and all of these dates are midweeks sandwiched in between 2 MLS games for us. Not ideal. This tournament is a complete, blatant cash grab in order to sell tickets to Liga MX fans who live in the United States.
My ideas to fix the tournament would be the following:
- Treat it as the "Europa League" of Concacaf
- Best non-CCL teams qualify (from MLS and Liga MX)
- Winner gets a CCL birth
- Home and Away Legs (or a 1 game knockout with a random draw for home team)
