How do the MLS playoffs work?

The MLS playoffs consist of seven rounds, including a wild card round. Before that, all clubs play their regularly scheduled games the weekend before the playoffs begin, commonly referred to as “Decision Day.”

Eighteen teams will qualify for the MLS playoffs.

The first round begins this weekend, followed by two more rounds in a best-of-3 series. The winner advances to the conference semifinals, then the conference finals, and finally the MLS Cup final.
