The idea behind this new format is to show FIFA the infrastructure and capabilities in the United States, Mexico and Canada leading up to the 2026 World Cup, the first in history to feature 48 countries and to take place in three countries. The champion of the 2023 Leagues Cup will earn a ticket to the round of 16 of the CONCACAF Champions League.
The game is about to start after the conclusion of the United States national anthem.
Major League Soccer and Liga MX made a major announcement on Tuesday regarding the change of format of the Leagues Cup starting in 2023. All the clubs from the top two leagues will compete in an annual, month-long tournament that will be played in the summer. So both leagues, MLS and Liga MX, will pause their respective campaigns for one month to play in the Leagues Cup.
Since Major League Soccer announced that the 2021 All-Star game will be played against the best players from Liga MX, it has been rumored that both leagues will become one in the near future. It seems that the announcement will come sooner rather than later because according to Mediotiempo as CONCACAF has approved the alliance between both leagues.
Brian Schmetzer, head coach of the Seattle Sounders, and his players are hoping to bring home their first international trophy. However, the chance to win doesn't come without pressure. Schmetzer briefly commented on the rivalry between the leagues saying "Our club comes first, our players come first and then we will see which league is better on the evening tomorrow."
