NEW YORK (October 6, 2019) – Following the intense action on Decision Day presented by AT&T, the matchups are set for the Audi 2019 MLS Cup Playoffs. For all 14 qualifying clubs, it’s win or go home in the new single-elimination, straight-bracket format that awards home-field advantage to the highest seeded teams. 

 

While top seeds LAFC and NYCFC have earned a bye in Round One, MLS today announced the schedule for the six Round One matches set for Sat., Oct. 19 and Sun., Oct. 20.

 

The Round One matches will kick off a three-week flurry of single-elimination matches that culminate in the ultimate prize: a spot in 2019 MLS Cup.

 

All six intraconference Round One matches will air domestically in the United States across Univision, ESPN and FOX Sports networks. Additionally, TSN and TVA Sports will provide coverage of all six matches throughout Canada.
