The MLS Cup has been the traditional home of the MLS Western Conference. Of the 12 MLS Cups played, eight of them have been won by the Western Conference. The D.C. United has won four MLS Cups and is the sole winner of the MLS Cup in the Eastern Conference. The Eastern Conference has enjoyed great success in the regular season, however, taking the Supporters’ Shield numerous times.
The Houston Dynamo are the defending MLS Cup Champions. Becoming one of the most popular teams in Texas sports, the Houston Dynamo are an MLS dynasty, taking the MLS Cup two years in a row. The Houston Dynamo also continued Western Conference MLS Cup supremacy. The New England Revolution has represented the MLS Eastern Conference in the MLS Cup for three years in a row and has yet to taste victory.
The MLS Cup sits atop Major League Soccer as the ultimate prize in American soccer. It is a difficult task for any team to reach the MLS Cup let alone win it. The Houston Dynamo will try to hold on but have strong Western Conference teams like the Los Angeles Galaxy fighting them every step of the way. The D.C. United and New England Revolution will be leading the Eastern Conference charge. Catch all the action when you order your MLS Cup tickets from OnlineTickets.com today!
