Atlanta United's quest for the Supporters’ Shield and the LA Galaxy’s quest to make the Audi 2018 MLS Cup playoffs will be televised nationally on Sunday.

With 22 teams in action for the penultimate week of the regular season, MLS announced Tuesday that ESPN and ESPN Deportes will air Atlanta’s game vs. the Chicago Fire at Mercedes-Benz Stadium (3 pm ET) followed by Minnesota United FC’s home clash with the Galaxy (5 pm ET) in the final match at TCF Bank Stadium before the Loons move to Allianz Field in 2019. Minnesota has sold and distributed more than 50,000 tickets for the match. 

On both sides of ESPN coverage, MLS will provide an hour of in-depth analysis on MLS Matchday Central, which will be live on as well as the league’s social media platforms.

All five Eastern Conference matchups will be played at 3 pm ET with all six Western Conference immediately following at 5 pm ET.
