In September 2021, Liga MX and Major Leagues Soccer (“MLS”) announced the expansion of Leagues Cup in 2023 to an annual 4-week tournament featuring all Liga MX and MLS clubs. Leagues Cup is an official Concacaf competition, and the top three finishers receive spots in the Concacaf Champions League with the winner advancing directly to the round of 16. Leagues Cup is the first and only officially sanctioned multi-country club competition in the world which represents an extraordinary opportunity for Liga MX and MLS to build one of the most unique and exciting club tournaments in the world within the Concacaf ecosystem, while accelerating the growth of soccer in the United States.
Liga MX and MLS are looking for an Executive Director to lead the governance, management, delivery, and growth of the expanded Leagues Cup tournament. The candidate will work collaboratively with Liga MX, MLS, and SUM leadership and staff, as well as dedicated Leagues Cup staff, to achieve the vision for the tournament and annual targets.
