The Patriots Could Ruin Plans for MLS Cup

The MLS Cup Final will be held on Dec. 6...unless the New England Revolution host it.

On Friday, MLS reveled the schedule for the 2015 playoffs. For the first time ever all postseason matches will be shown on national television, either on ESPN, FS1, Univision Deportes, TSN or RDS. The MLS Cup Final is expected to be shown on ESPN at 4 p.m. on Dec. 6.

That could change, however, if the Revs win the the right to host since Gillette Stadium is already booked that day for Patriots v. Eagles. League officials are aware of the conflict and alternatives are being discussed.

Whichever remaining team has the highest point total will get to host the MLS Cup Final. The Revs are currently third in the Eastern Conference with 47 points.

The full schedule:

First Leg – Sunday, Nov. 1

3 p.m. ET (ESPN, ESPN Deportes)
