About This Competition

As footballing federations go, the USA MLS is a relative newcomer having been first founded in 1993. There are currently 24 teams in the league. The MLS (Major League Soccer) is the top tier of professional football (soccer) in the United States. Football in the USA works in a different way to European football. Instead of the independently owned teams we have in Europe, the USA MLS is a single “unit or entity” in which each team is owned by the league's investors. Promotion to and from this league is decided on a financial and license basis. As such, there is no regular promotion or relegation. Teams are ranked in the League by points, the same way that the European leagues are. The domestic trophy for the MLS is the U.S. Open Cup, but teams in the league also play for the CONCACAF Champions League, Campeones Cup, and the Leagues Cup. The 24 teams are divided by geographical location between the Eastern and Western Conferences. The MLS regular season of 34 games is followed by a postseason knockout tournament. Each of the fourteen teams participates in the MLS Cup Playoffs.
