    CONCACAF Champions League
    Selection Procedure
    • Four US-based teams qualified for the 2019 CONCACAF Champions League. Due to a change in format to the tournament, two qualifiers came from each of the 2017 and 2018 MLS seasons.[25] This combined qualification method was used for the 2019 tournament only. For the 2017 season, the following teams qualified:
      1. The winner of MLS Cup 2017; this berth was reallocated to the best US team in aggregate points in both 2017 and 2018 MLS seasons (New York Red Bulls) as Toronto FC won the Cup.
      2. The winner of the 2017 U.S. Open Cup (Sporting Kansas City).
      Thus unlike previous seasons, the Supporters' Shield winner and the regular season conference champion that did not win the Supporters Shield were not guaranteed a berth. Each qualifier entered at the second phase of the tournament.
      One Canada-based team qualified for the 2018 CONCACAF Champions League, also entering at the second phase (NOTE: Canadian teams could not qualify through MLS):
      1. The winner of both the 2016 and 2017 Canadian Championship (Toronto FC)
