Major League Soccer is back and there’s a new club in the house, a record-setting one at that.
Charlotte FC is here from scratch to take its best shot at establishing a new power in MLS’ Eastern Conference, though there will be familiar names to chase down including New York Red Bulls, Columbus Crew, and MLS Cup winners New York City FC.

Both conferences will be bidding to take down defending Supporters’ Shield winners New England Revolution, who now have Jozy Altidore on board, while the West was won by surprising Colorado last year (Surely Seattle, Portland, and both LA clubs will be planning to end that title reign).
MLS begins in February this season and will end earlier than usual with a winter World Cup on the horizon.
Below you’ll find both conference standings, next week’s fixtures, and all the results from the 2022 MLS schedule.
