For the 2020 season, MLR will change to a conference format. Both conferences, the Western Conference and the Eastern Conference, will consist of six teams: Seattle, San Diego, Utah, Glendale, Austin and Houston in the west and existing teams New Orleans, New York, and Toronto to be joined by 2020 newcomers Atlanta, Washington D. C. , and New England in the east. Each team will play a double round-robin within their conference in addition to playing six games against teams from the other conference, for a total of 96 regular season games. The postseason will consist of the top three teams from each conference: a wildcard game between the second and third ranked teams, followed by a playoff game between the wildcard winner and the first ranked team in the conference. The resulting playoff winners from each conference will then face off in the league championship. The season is scheduled to start on February 15, 2020.
