The MLS participants: LA Galaxy (MLS Cup Champs), Houston Dynamo (MLS Cup runner-up), Seattle Sounders (US Open Cup champs), Real Salt Lake (the best record not winning one of the other slots), and Toronto FC (winner of the Canadian Championship). The various matchdays in the CCL are a bit odd this time around since the groups are comprised of three teams rather than four. This means that we'll rarely, if ever, have all five MLS teams active in the same week as only one game per group can happen each match week. Games are shown on FOX Soccer Channel, and if we have the same system in place as past seasons, on the CONCACAF tv station on the web as well.
