Leagues Cup returns in 2021 after a thrilling inaugural edition in 2019 – which saw Cruz Azul emerge as the first-ever Champions of the interleague competition between Major League Soccer and LIGA MX. This year’s edition, featuring four clubs from each of the two best leagues in North America, is set to be an exciting clash that will build upon the on-field rivalry between both leagues.
The tournament is set to kickoff with the Quarterfinal matches the week of August 9, with the four MLS clubs having qualified via the 2020 Regular Season: Sporting Kansas City, Orlando City SC, Seattle Sounders FC, and New York City FC. The Semifinals will be played the week of September 13, with the Final scheduled to take place the week of September 21.
Additional details around the 2021 edition of Leagues Cup, including qualified LIGA MX teams, dates, and full schedule will be announced at a later date.
