  • MLS NEXT Cup playoff matches will be 80 minutes in the U-15 age group and 90 minutes in the other three age groups.
  • If a match ends in a draw in regular time, all matches will go to penalty shootouts, except the four championship matches, which will feature two five-minute overtime periods.
  • If the championship games are still tied after overtime, the teams will be decided on penalties.

Teams that do not qualify for the MLS NEXT Cup Playoffs may also participate in the MLS NEXT Cup Showcase. Showcase provides MLS NEXT players the opportunity to compete in front of hundreds of collegiate, international and professional coaches and scouts.

Additionally, the U-13 and U-14 age groups will return this year to compete in the MLS NEXT Cup Showcase.

All clubs participating in the MLS NEXT Cup Showcase will play three games over four days. Clubs eliminated in the first two rounds of the MLS NEXT Cup Playoffs are also eligible to participate in the Showcase.

The event will also feature five MLS NEXT “Best Of” matches, with top players from MLS NEXT Cup Showcase teams competing in the U-13, U-14, U-15, U-16 and U-17/U- 18 age groups.

These players are selected based on their performance in league play, MLS NEXT Fest and MLS NEXT Flex.
