Right. When Toronto won the MLS Cup in 2017, that did not get them a CCL spot. Their CCL spot was from winning the Canadian Cup. In a normal year, the CCL spot would have gone to us as 2nd in the Supporters Shield, but 2017 and 2018 were that weird period where they combined qualification over two years, and the CCL berth went to the Red Bulls because they had the most points over the two seasons.We can also add that Montreal qualified for CCL out of the MLS.
ETA. Wait, if Toronto wins they don't get the MLS Cup spot? I know it belongs to the USSF, but they are an MLS team. I would think it would go like this.
Canadian Championship: MTL
MLS Cup: TOR
Does Toronto not quality for CCL by winning MLS Cup alone?
