How to play

  1. Sign in with your account. If you don't have an account, you can create your free account now.
  2. Join or create leagues so you can play with friends, family, or fellow soccer fans. There are leagues for every MLS club.
  3. Beginning Nov. 9, fill out your bracket by selecting the teams you think will win every playoff match from the First Round all the way through to MLS Cup on December 12.
  4. You'll also be asked to predict the total goals scored for each of the Conference Finals, as well as the final score for MLS Cup (excluding PK shootouts). For example: If you think the match will end 1-1 and then go to a PK shootout to determine the winner, you would enter "1-1" as the score.
  5. Save your bracket by selecting the "Save" button. You can still edit your bracket after you select save until the bracket locks just before the First Round kicks off.
