MLS Cup

The MLS Cup is the post-season championship game of Major League Soccer. The winner is crowned champion in the same manner as in other North American sports leagues. This differs from other top soccer leagues around the world which consider the club with the most points at the end of the season to be the sole champion. MLS honors that achievement with the Supporters' Shield. A U.S.-based team that wins the MLS Cup is awarded one of that country's berths in the following year's CONCACAF Champions League. The league hosted its inaugural championship, MLS Cup 1996 on October 20, 1996. Today the MLS Cup is typically held in the middle of November, featuring the winners of the Eastern Conference Championship and Western Conference Championship. LA Galaxy are the most successful team, winning a record fifth Cup in 2014.
