2022 World Cup is going to be held in November- December. Assuming we qualify, For the first time, this will not favor MLS. European players will be mid-season and in-from. What this also means is that our European players will be more in-form and fit for an immediate tournament. This will create a difficult situation for those who might use the World Cup as a MLS representation marketing tactic. It will need to be recognized that 2022 World cup needs to be mostly European players to not create a self-inflicted disadvantage. For 2026 World Cup, MLS will then be back to having the advantage.
