The stage is set for the biggest eMLS event of the season.
The 2021 eMLS Cup presented by Coca-Cola will see Sporting Kansas City's Alekzandur play for prize money and FIFA bragging rights on March 20-21. Fans can catch the event live on Twitch.tv/sportingkcgaming, Twitch.tv/MLS, Twitter.com/MLS, MLSsoccer.com and the free MLS app.
Alekzandur, a Kansas City native who qualified for the eMLS Cup by virtue of his strong performances in qualifiers for League Series One and League Series Two this winter, will go up against FC Cincinnati's Fiddle in the first round of the competition. The winner will advance to face Austin FC's Xbleu in the quarterfinals.
The eMLS Cup field currently consists of 11 players. The tournament's 12th and final berth will go to the last chance play-in winner, which will be up for grabs among the other 16 eMLS players who didn't automatically qualify for the eMLS Cup.
