MLS on Monday night released the schedule for the 2021 MLS Cup Playoffs. Atlanta United will begin its quest for its 2nd league championship in club history at NYCFC on Sunday, November 21 at 3 p.m. ET on ABC, ESPN Deportes, and on the ESPN app.

Should Atlanta defeat NYCFC at Yankee Stadium, it will visit the top-seeded New England Revolution, who have a first-round bye, in the Eastern Conference Semifinals. That is set for Tuesday, November 30 at 7:30 p.m. ET on FS1, FOX Deportes, and the FOX Sports app. The Eastern Conference Finals will take place on either December 4 or 5 on either FS1/FOX Deportes/the FOX Sports app or ABC/ESPN Deportes/the ESPN app, with exact times and dates revealed once matchups are determined.

Then, of course, is MLS Cup, December 11 at 3 p.m. ET on ABC, UniMas, and the ESPN app.

It’s not the toughest trip in the world for Atlanta fans who want to spend a quick weekend in the City That Never Sleeps a few days before the Thanksgiving travel season begins. Are you planning to be at the match in person?
