Like much of the sports world, Major League Soccer saw its 2020 schedule upended because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The league managed to get through just two weeks of its 2020 schedule before being shut down as the world looked to stop the spread of the virus. After several months of inactivity, MLS returned in a “bubble” at Walt Disney World (right next to the NBA’s bubble) for a one-off tournament where the group-stage games also counted toward the regular season. 

Immediately after the Orlando tourney, teams resumed action for “Phase 1” of the return to the regular season, with each team playing six games within their own region through Sept. 16. That has helped fuel local rivalries, making for some heated affairs.

On Sept. 11, the league announced the schedule for the rest of September, along with the playoff qualification and format.

During that time period from Sept. 18-27, with the league continuing to finalize travel protocols, the Canadian teams will play all three of their matches in the U.S., including each club hosting one home match in a U.S. city. The Montreal Impact will host a match at Red Bull Arena in Harrison, N.J., Toronto FC at Rentschler Field in Hartford, Conn., and Vancouver Whitecaps FC at Providence Park in Portland, Ore.

As for playoffs, they will consist of single-elimination matches hosted by the higher-seeded team and follow a straight bracket format through MLS Cup on Dec.12.

Eighteen clubs will compete in the MLS playoffs. Eight teams from the 12-team Western Conference will qualify directly to Round 1. The top six seeds from the 14-team Eastern Conference will qualify directly to Round 1. Eastern Conference seeds 7-10 will each compete in a play-in match (No. 7 vs. No. 10, and No. 8 vs. No. 9) to determine the two additional Eastern Conference teams that will qualify for Round 1.

The lower-seeded advancing team will face the Eastern Conference No. 1 seed in Round 1, while the higher-seeded advancing team will face the Eastern Conference No. 2 seed.

The playoff schedule has yet to be announced.
