LEAGUES CUP SHOWCASE
The Leagues Cup Showcase series serves as a preview to the highly-anticipated 2023 Leagues Cup. The Leagues Cup will be a monumental new chapter for North American soccer, beginning next summer, where all of the clubs from the top two first division leagues in North America -- Major League Soccer and LIGA MX -- will compete in a completely reimagined Leagues Cup: an annual, month-long, tournament. Both leagues will pause their respective seasons for one month during the summer to play Leagues Cup, showcasing the soccer infrastructure and capabilities in the region in the years leading into the 2026 FIFA World Cup in the U.S., Canada and Mexico -- the first World Cup to feature 48 countries.
FC Cincinnati will host one of five Showcase matches this year in anticipation and preview for next summer’s tournament. FCC hosts Chivas and Nashville SC faces Club América on Wednesday, while Real Salt Lake hosts Atlas FC on Thursday.
The three Showcases this week join the previously played August 3 doubleheader in Los Angeles which featured LA Galaxy vs. Chivas and LAFC vs. Club América at SoFi Stadium in front of 71,189 fans, a crowd larger than February’s Super Bowl.
Washington Park will be filled with free fan experiences beginning at 4:30 p.m. including:
• La Mega Radio
• Kids soccer activations
• FIFA video game station
• P&G Table
