(East Los Angeles, CA) [From The Editor’s Desk]: The time has come for the big battle to win the coveted Audi MLS Cup in 2023. It’s down to the final (8) as the remaining spots were filled last weekend to complete the four brackets. In one of the West brackets, it will be our #3 seed, Black & Gold vs. the #2 seed Seattle Sounders FC on Sunday, November 26th, in the Emerald City of our country’s state of Washington, located in the famous and historic Northwest Territory.
The LAFC is in great shape to make a strong defense of its reigning status as Champions when it begins its “defending Champions” run to the title at Lumen Field in Seattle, as they will face the Sounders in a single elimination match.
