Recommended Posts

Includes annual Campeones Cup in September, pitting the two league champs against each other (this year TFC vs either Tigres or the 2018  winner), Liga MX all-stars will face the MLS all-stars one year and the homegrown game will now be against a Liga MX under 20 team and then the usual sharing of info stuff.

This year’s match will be hosted at BMO Field on Sept. 19 as Toronto FC will take on the winner a match between Liga MX’s Apertura champions, Tigres, and whichever team wins the Clausura championship.

Honestly this feels sort of redundant with the CCL. 

Oh it totally is, once again SUM/MLS is not showing any respect to a tournament that already helps decide "the best club in North America." (their press release).

If SUM had their hands further in the CONCACAF bowl, this game wouldn't even be needed.  

I'd love the see the reactions of the layman TFC fans who once again get to play against Tigres later this year, after already playing them this month in a competition meant to achieve the same thing. (Who am I kidding, this is meant to achieve $$$).
