MLS announces 2020 home openers, teams no longer will play every club each season

NEW YORK — Major League Soccer is breaking away from soccer’s tradition of having each team play every opponent in its league.

MLS is expanding to 26 teams in 2020 with the additions of Miami and Nashville but will keep a 34-game regular-season schedule. A team will play each of its 12 conference opponents home and away, and will face only 10 of the 13 teams in the other conference.

Colorado opens its season on the road at D.C. United at 11 a.m. Feb. 29. The Rapids will host their home opener at 7 p.m. March 7 against Orlando.
