MLS Playoff Format

Only one team from each conference will receive a bye in the first round of the playoffs. This means six additional teams from each conference will qualify for the playoffs for a total of 14 teams overall.

Playoffs feature a fixed-bracket, single-elimination format with higher seeds hosting throughout the playoffs. This new format began in 2019.

DC United appeared in the first four MLS Cup Finals, winning three titles in the process. However, their fortunes have turned more recently, having not reached the final since 2004, another year in which they were crowned champions. Those four titles put them only behind the LA Galaxy all-time who have five.
