MLS announces conference alignments for 2020, Nashville SC joins Western Conference

Details are slowly trickling in for the 2020 regular season and today’s installment may be one of the more puzzling ones yet.

Major League Soccer has revealed that Inter Miami CF and Nashville SC will be in separate conferences for their debut season after the conference alignment was confirmed by the league for next year. Inter Miami join the East, while Nashville SC will compete in the West, ensuring both conferences will feature 13 clubs.

Yes, Nashville, a city that is clearly East of one team that will remain in the Eastern Conference (the Chicago Fire), will be joining FC Dallas and the rest of the Western Conference in 2020.
