MLS Cup 2023: Columbus Crew to host at Field


We're heading to Field in Columbus, Ohio.

The Columbus Crew, after a over Hell is Real rival FC Cincinnati in Saturday night's Eastern Conference Final, will host MLS Cup presented by Audi on Dec. 9 (4 pm ET | Apple TV - Free).

Head coach Wilfried Nancy's team, which got a 115th-minute game-winner from Christian Ramirez, will welcome defending champions and Western Conference winners LAFC after they beat Houston Dynamo FC, 2-0, at home.

As has been the case since 2012, the finalist with the highest regular-season point total hosts MLS Cup. If both finalists have the same amount of regular-season points, the team with more wins – or, if they're tied in that category, better goal difference – will host MLS Cup.

In the chase for the Philip F. Anschutz Trophy, there are nine teams each across the Eastern Conference and Western Conference (18 teams total). LAFC are defending MLS Cup champions.
