The Audi 2015 MLS Cup Playoffs might only be starting this week, but it is still never too early to dream of hosting the MLS Cup Final.
For 10 of the 12 participating teams, that dream could become reality.
The New York Red Bulls hold homefield advantage throughout the postseason after winning the Supporters' Shield, taking the top seed on #DecisionDay. But the door would open for another club to host the championship match should they slip up. In fact, all of the qualified teams have a chance to host, even if small, except for the New England Revolution and Toronto FC due their lower point totals.
