no. Sadly, they killed that off years ago.
there is still Fox Soccer Plus - the channel that no one gets. The USMNT’s January camp cupcake game has been relegated to FSP.

expect CCL to be moved there unless it’s a big Liga MX team.

I used to have a channel 1099. Maybe it was Fox Soccer Plus and not Fox Soccer.

The Celtic and other SPL games would be on that channel

Interestingly, Fox Soccer Plus is what we olds used to call Setanta Sports, back in the dar ages when you had to wake up early on a Saturday and shlep to one of the half-dozen or so bars in NY that actually showed one premier league game per time slot.
It was Kinsale Tavern on the UES for me.

LWS??? Was that TriBeCa before it went the way of the cash-money Benjamin?
I think it was lower west side. I don’t do manhattan geography very well.

Yes. It’s closed now. Everton bar moved uptown a bit

ULTRAS!!: Time to take it to them in the stands and show our disgust! We should, under no circumstances, be playing ANY game at RB Arena. Embarrassing in every way. Let's borrow a tune from the dark days of big bro Man City and let them know how we feel...

WE'RE NOT REALLY HERE
We are not, we're not really here
We are not, we're not really here
Just like the fans of the Invisible Man
We're not really here

Isn't the big thing not SCCL prize, but bonus for making the Club World Cup?

Also this little gem is very interesting:


"North America, Asia and Africa will all have three spots each, with a maximum of two teams allowed from the same country. "

With Chivas (2018) and Monterrey (2019) already qualified, how do they choose the 3rd qualifier? And if a Mexican team wins 2020, how do they choose from those 3? Also how do they pick the 3rd club from another country?

Maybe it's time for a Club World Cup thread. If we go by most points from 2018-2020 in MLS NYCFC would be in the driver's seat. I'm not sure what other metric you'd use since if you go by shields or cups, teams would be tied. If shields + cups then ATL would be looking good.

everyone expects an MLS team to get third spot ( which is in a way messed up since they never won it) but the catch here is that this tournament will be in the summer of 2021. meaning no matter who gets picked in MLS it will be a pain rescheduling possiblt 2/3 games plus maybe a US open cup game ( if possible). if its us then ohhhh man we in a world of hurt and embarrassment.

At least we won't be asked to play any "home" matches.
