The MLS Cup Playoffs is unlike any tournament in soccer. Twelve teams, six from each conference, will compete in a knockout-style tournament to determine the champions.
It begins in a Knockout Stage where the bottom-four seeds from each conference play a single-game elimination. The highest seed plays the lowest seed (#3 vs #6) and the second-highest, plays the second-lowest (#4 vs #5).
The winners advance to the Conference Semifinals where the highest seed (#1) plays the lowest seed and the second-highest (#2) plays the second-lowest. The winners advance to the Conference Finals. Both rounds are played in a two-legged home-and-home aggregate-style series.
The MLS Cup is like the Super Bowl of the MLS. The winner of each conference advance to this one-game final hosted by the team with the better regular season record.
This is the current bracket of the 2018 MLS Cup Playoffs:
