2019 MLS Cup Playoffs schedule: Conference semifinals set

The first-round playoff opponents are now set, and games kick off Oct. 19.

Major League Soccer’s regular season came to an end when all 24 teams played at the same time for a dramatic 2019 Decision Day.

After a thrilling opening round to the MLS Cup playoffs, the conference semifinalists are locked in. 

The playoffs have a different format this year. All matches are single elimination instead of having home-and-away series for the conference semifinals and finals. The change means MLS Cup will be played in Nov. 10 instead of in December.
