MLS listened to me!
MLS to adopt new playoff structure in 2019
How are they doing tie breakers in the single elimination match? Is it extra time then pens?
Very interesting. 14/24 in the playoffs is a bit to much BUT the season finishing a month earlier is great and the end of home-away ties is another great decision, now the regular season will have much more importance and the teams will have time to sell and promote those playoffs games.
That's the only way no?
I mean, I've seen people on here saying things like home seed wins a tie. Just wanted to confirm that wasn't the case.
Theoretically you could also use away goals, but that would be really stupid in a single fixture.
Its gotta be. Which is fine because home field advantage.
I think the goal is to get to 8x8 as the league expands.
I'd rather keep the top see bye than expand to 8.
14 teams is already more than enough, 16 would be ridiculous. I would prefer the old format. 6 by conferences and 2 byes. But with the new one game only format.
Me too but its pretty obvious that's what MLS is looking to do
It's still not yet signed and sealed, but this is a very good sign:
MLS, Crew SC announce home opener date
Forget that. Extra time and penalties on a single game= ratings.
