CONCACAF Champions League Expanded
The Continental championship now consists of 32 teams. The USA gets 4 and Canada now gets 3. Three of the USA clubs come from MLS and one from the US Open Cup. I tried to get the Open Canada Cup winner in, but every time the OCC winner was in the top 3 of the Canadian Championship, the extra slot would go the USA. The Open Canada Cup winner does get a significant cash prize so the tournament is still worth it.
It is now possible to take a club from the doldrums of a high school stadium in the NPSL all the way to MLS.
In the USA, the last placed club in each conference/division will be relegated (the bottom 2 teams in each American Soccer League conference are relegated). Each division winner is promoted.
In Canada, the two last placed clubs in the top two divisions are relegated. The top two finishers in the CSL are promoted, and each conference winner in the CSL2 is promoted.
USA and Canada now produced better players
The two countries should be set up to develop better players. The higher income will also allow clubs to maintain and improve their youth and training facilities.
Logos and Kits for all USA teams and competitions are available. This includes DC United's new logo and some clubs have been rebranded (Detroit City, AFC Cleveland, etc).
-Atlanta United, Los Angeles FC, and David Beckham's Miami club (Inter Miami) have all been added. Also added are many of the lower league clubs set to begin play in real life in the near future (FC Cincinnati, Miami FC, Rayo OKC, Bethlehem Steel, Memphis City, RGV FC Toros, etc). So there are some interesting challenges at all levels.
-For some added intrigue, take one of the Puerto Rico clubs (Puerto Rico FC and Bayamon FC), and play in the Caribbean Club Championship for a chance to qualify for the CONCACAF Champions League.
The database has been tested up to 2036. Here are some notes:
-Both countries produce much better players. Both USA and Canada have qualified for every World Cup, and the USA finished third at Australia 2034. Canada has not won the Gold Cup, but the USA has 5 out of 10, with Mexico winning 3 (Jamaica and El Salvador (WTF?) each won once). The USA did win the Confederations Cup in 2021 and finished third in 2033. The USA won the gold at the Olympics in 2032 and took bronze in 2024. The youth is where the USA has really shown, winning 3 U-20 World Cups (27, 33, 35), second in 2023, and third place 3 times (17, 21, 31). An American attacking midfielder regen even won the Ballon D'Or twice.
-The quality of clubs has greatly improved. New York City is probably the nations' megaclub, but they aren't invincible. They won MLS 7 out of 21 times, but they just ended a stretch of five years where they didn't even make it to the MLS Cup championship. NYCFC has won the Champions League 9 times and finished second twice. They have won the FIFA Club World Cup a record five times, and theyve also finished second twice and third once. Chicago also won the Club World Cup once, and the LA Galaxy, Seattle, Houston, Toronto FC and even Ottawa Fury have all either finished runner up or third place.
