MLS: 2020 All-Star Announcement Kelvin Kuo-USA TODAY Sports

While we all hope to see Major League Soccer and FC Dallas return to the field in some form this summer, the league did offer up some updates on other competitions that were set to take place.

The MLS All-Star Game, Leagues Cup and Campeones Cup have been canceled for 2020.

Originally scheduled to take place on July 29 at Banc of California Stadium in Los Angeles, the MLS was set to take on the best of Liga MX for the mid-summer showcase game. MLS and LIGA MX will resume discussions regarding the event, and there is every expectation that next year’s All-Star Game will be MLS vs. LIGA MX in Los Angeles.

In addition, the league is reviewing proposals from three cities to host the 2022 MLS All-Star Game. Details regarding the 2021 and 2022 All-Star Games will be announced at a later date.

The second edition of the annual tournament between top MLS and LIGA MX teams, which was to take place between July and September, has been cancelled in a joint decision by both leagues. MLS and LIGA MX plan to play Leagues Cup in 2021.

The third edition of Campeones Cup, which features the reigning MLS Cup champion against the winner of LIGA MX’s Campeón de Campeones, has been cancelled by the two leagues. It was scheduled to take place on August 12 at CenturyLink Field, the home of the 2019 MLS Cup champions, Seattle Sounders FC. The event will return in 2021.
