MLS revealed the full schedule for its landmark 20th season on Wednesday, complete with an unprecedented slate of nationally televised games, two more weekends of high-profile rivalry games and – for the first time in league history – a final day of the regular season that will see crucial games played simultaneously to decide which teams live to play another day in the MLS Cup Playoffs.
The league also announced that the playoff field will expand to 12 teams in 2015, as the sixth-place teams in both the Eastern and Western Conferences will qualify for the postseason. The Knockout Rounds will now consist of four single-elimination matches on the road to MLS Cup in early December.
MLS’ 20 teams will each play 34 games during the regular season, for a total of 340 matches. Clubs will play each team in the opposing conference once for five home and five away matches, each of their nine conference opponents at least twice (one home, one away) and six additional intra-conference games — three home and three away versus different opponents.
The 2015 season marks the first of an eight-year television and media rights partnership with ESPN, FOX Sports and Univision that will feature a Univision game of the week on Friday nights and an ESPN and FOX Sports double-header nearly every Sunday all season.
