Interesting. MLS Wants to revamp the playoffs. # of games would go from 13 up to possibly 30.

https://theathletic.com/3730955/2022/10/25/mls-considering-significant-overhaul-of-playoff-format-sources/

Two options mentioned in the article are:

A) A playoff group stage (Break down 16 playoff qualifiers into four groups of four (keeping within conferences, so there would be two western conference groups, and two eastern conference groups, play each other once (the two higher seed teams in each group would get two home playoff games, the two lower seeds only get one) top two from each playoff group qualify for quarterfinals, then single legged knock out from there

and

B) Two-legged matches (home and away) throughout the playoffs.

 

My thought: If they're going with option A, make it so all post season games are at the higher seed throughout the group stage (so the top team in each playoff group would get all three games at home, 2nd seed would get two games at home (the third at the top seed on the road), so on and so forth.

C, the current one for years won. The star isn't showing as it's yellow marking the FA Cup win. A has the Bantam treading on the year the club came to be and B has the Bantam stupidly looking away from the ball.

Prefer these to A & B:

If I'm reading this right, they're going to pay $780M to build the stadium, but none of that will go to buying the land.  They'll pay $4M per year in rent  Well, it's not like City Football Group doesn't have the money to do it. 

And NYCFC needs to get out of Yankee Stadium.  Having to play "home" games at RBA and in Los Angeles is a bad look for the League in general and the club in particular.
