Philadelphia Union News Release


CHESTER, Pa. - In celebration of the 100 Days milestone from the start of Leagues Cup 2024 this summer, the tournament announced today its pool of venues for the Knockout Round stages.

Named the host team for the Knockout Round stages, the Union will kick off their 2024 Leagues Cup campaign at Subaru Park against Charlotte FC on Saturday, July 27th at 8:00 p.m. and Cruz Azul on August 4th at 8:00 p.m. In last year's inaugural Leagues Cup campaign, the Union reached the semifinals and secured a 2024 Concacaf Champions Cup berth by defeating C.F. Monterrey in a third-place match on August 19, 2023.

Leagues Cup 2024 is the second edition of the exciting Concacaf-sanctioned World Cup-style club tournament, featuring all 18 clubs from the Mexican league, LIGA MX, and all 29 clubs from Major League Soccer (MLS), representing the United States and Canada. Leagues Cup 2024 to be played July 26 to August 25, 2024, will determine three qualifiers for the 2025 Concacaf Champions Cup.

Leagues Cup 2024 Format

As previously announced, Leagues Cup will be played with seven groups in the East and eight groups in the West, regionalizing travel for all participating clubs.

The LIGA MX champion and the three top-ranked LIGA MX clubs will be granted hub privileges, which will minimize LIGA MX club travel and reward clubs by allowing them to play in pre-determined venues as the home team. Hub privileges are based on the Leagues Cup Ranking.
