2020-21 Competition Details

The rules, regulations and format of MLS NEXT competitions are designed with the best interest of the player’s development in mind. 
While team success is important and will be rewarded, our primary objective is to challenge players, accelerate their growth and showcase their talents.

MLS NEXT clubs will participate in a year-round competitive schedule, including League matches, Events and Playoffs. Clubs can enter teams at the U-13, U-14, U-15, U-16, U-17 and U-19 age groups.

While we all want to get back on the field this Fall, the health and safety of our players comes first. As such, each club’s competition schedule will be released with a “phased-in” approach that is in compliance with all federal, state and local government recommendations for youth sports.

The full MLS NEXT competition schedule will be released shortly.
