MLS newcomers Atlanta United and Minnesota United FC will be looking to replicate the trophy-winning exploits of the 1998 Chicago Fire and 2009 Seattle Sounders FC teams that won the coveted trophy in their inaugural MLS seasons.
Under the new CONCACAF Champions League format, the 2017 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup winner will be qualified to participate in the 2019 CONCACAF Champions League, joined by the 2017 MLS Cup winner and the 2018 U.S. Open Cup and MLS Cup winners.
