Changes From 2002edit

  • Instead of a best-of-three series, the MLS Cup Playoffs changed their format so that the quarterfinal fixtures or conference semifinals would be a home and away aggregate over two matches, the team with the higher seed would have the home game in the second leg The two semifinals or conference finals became one match fixtures instead of two legs The Cup final remained one match
