Nashville SC and MLS confirmed in their release that “additional 2020 MLS regular season matches will be announced pending further developments regarding travel protocols.”

MLS has had issues finalizing details for how their three Canadian teams will play against the rest of the league, as travel to and from Canada has been complicated by Covid-19 protocols.

MLS also confirmed the qualification process for the Audi 2020 MLS Playoffs. The playoffs will consist of single-elimination matches hosted by the higher seed in a straight bracket format, culminating in MLS Cup on December 12.

Eight out of twelve sides from the Western Conference will qualify directly for Round 1. The top six sides from the 14-tema Eastern Conference will qualify, with teams seven through ten competing in a play in match to determine the remaining two sides.

The playoff schedule and broadcast details will be announced at a later date.

  1. Will be a very interesting group of games, would hope to end up 1-1-1 against the Crew, Dynamo, and United, respectively. Hopefully home field will make the difference against Houston for not having to travel. Ben have you heard anything about why we might not have gotten a game against Cincy, since they’re close by and we got moved to the East temporarily.

    1. I haven’t. I was pretty surprised that they scheduled Houston over Cincy. I expected it to be all Eastern Conference opponents from here on out. Fortunately, Nashville won’t have to travel, and Houston could be without Alberth Elis, who looks like he’s set for a move to Portugal.
