SANTA CLARA, Calif. – The official Leagues Cup 2024 Group Stage schedule and tournament’s hub venues were unveiled today, along with the Bracket Announcement presented by Coors Light. The second edition of this Concacaf-sanctioned competition features all 18 clubs from the Mexican league, LIGA MX, and all 29 clubs from Major League Soccer (MLS) representing the U.S. and Canada. These 47 clubs will compete in a World Cup-style club tournament from July 26 to August 25, 2024.

 The San Jose Earthquakes will face LIGA MX side Club Deportivo Guadalajara, also known as Chivas, on Saturday, July 27, at Levi’s® Stadium at 7 p.m. PT. Due to tournament seeding, Chivas will be the home side against San Jose.

The momentous match against Chivas at Levi’s® Stadium, which will mark the Mexican giants’ first-ever trip to the Bay Area for an official game, features global star Javier “Chicharito” Hernández and the much-anticipated return of former MLS All-Star and current U.S. Men’s National team forward Cade Cowell.
