There’s nothing quite like it.

Add the fascinating subplots of intense rivalries, grueling extra time, and the lottery of penalty shoot-outs and the appetite for excitement is sure to be satisfied.
Standing proudly as the reigning Champions following our unforgettable maiden 2021 success, New York will be regarded as one of the teams to beat and heading into the post-season in fine form, will be giving our absolute all to defend our crown.
City in the Citi
With Monday night’s fixture now set to be played at Citi Field, the MLS Cup Champions have the chance to ensure home advantage can play a real part in round one.
Our recent run of form has most certainly been inspired by the loyal City faithful – our Campeones Cup and Hudson River Derby triumphs proving particularly memorable – with Cushing and the players having spoken of the impact a vocal home crowd can have.
