Up to 10 MLS clubs will participate in 2024 Concacaf Champions League

The 2023 MLS regular season just got much more interesting as up to 10 — and as few as five — MLS sides will make the 2024 Concacaf Champions League. Growing from the 16-team tournament it is now and in 2023, the ‘24 CCL will be contested by 27 teams, adding a round of knockout competition.

MLS sides can qualify via league play, the expanded Leagues Cup that starts next summer, and their national cup competition. The depth of standing in ‘23 will be vital, as many of the tie-breakers and backup slots come via regular-season standings.
