Cup competition pitting MLS and Liga MX sides close to fruition

A new cup competition pitting the top sides from Major League Soccer against top Liga MX sides could be launched as early as the second half of 2019 reports ESPN.

The competition is part of a larger collaboration between MLS and Liga MX, which includes the annual Copa Campeones which began in 2018, and potential matches pitting the all-stars of both leagues against one another.

Similar to the defunct Superliga competition that ran from 2007 to 2010, eight teams will feature, pitting four sides from each league against each other. However, the Superliga tournament took place in the summer during the Liga MX closed season, while the new event is likely to take place in the fall, when the former group stages of the Concacaf Champions League occurs.
