Like the expanded format of Leagues Cup, this CCL event may be expanding to build interest in the three nation World Cup hosted by a trio of region members, USA, Mexico & Canada.
Here, it now grows to 27 teams as 22 join the Opening Round, the balance in the Round of 16. The latter group will consist of MLS, Liga MX & CPL top teams, joined by Lamar Hunt US Open Cup and Canadian Championship winners.read
Let's try this one on for size, Liga MX & MLS will both take a month off for these games. How will that work with the northern teams in our domestic league, with cold weather at the start & end, or end even more so or a more congested schedule, neither are to me a good option. Interspersing the games throughout the season may be a better fit, make the games special, build interest in fans of both leagues in the other. I do want to see who my fav team takes on in a week or 3 as they face another in league play.read
