Jan 31, 2024, 10:04 AM | Updated: Feb 1, 2024, 2:01 pm

SALT LAKE CITY – RSL will see some familiar faces in the 2024 Leagues Cup as they were drawn into the West 8 Group with Liga MX side Atlas FC and MLS rival Houston Dynamo.

Real Salt Lake played Atlas FC in a 2022 showcase match. Houston eliminated RSL in the Open Cup and the MLS Cup Playoff last season.

RSL was ranked 16th in the pool of 47 clubs, narrowly missing out on the top tier. This just means that Real will travel to Houston to face the Dynamo who were ranked 14th.

Changes To Leagues Cup From 2023

The Leagues Cup format was changed a bit from last year.

The tournament is moving on to a tiered ranking system. The Leagues Cup ranking will be based on club performance and points in the last 34 regular season matches.

Real Salt Lake advanced from the group stage in last year’s Leagues Cup after defeating Seattle and dropping to Monterrey.

After a big 3-1 victory over León in the Round of 32, RSL’s run came to an end with a 4-0 loss to LAFC in the Round of 16.

Inter Miami CF with Lionel Messi went on to defeat Nashville SC in the championship.

Leagues Cup 2024 will run from Friday, July 26 to Sunday, August 25.
