    CONCACAF Champions League
    Selection Procedure
    • Four US-based teams qualify for the 2018 CONCACAF Champions League:
      1. The winner of the MLS Cup 2016 (Seattle Sounders FC);
      2. The winner of the Supporters' Shield (FC Dallas);
      3. The regular season conference champion that did not win the Supporters Shield (New York Red Bulls);
      4. The winner of the 2016 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup (FC Dallas; already qualified, so berth passes to Colorado Rapids)
      Should a team qualify through more than one method, or should a team from Canada occupy any MLS qualifying place, the next best US team in the overall table would take its place.
      One Canada-based team qualifies for the Champions League (NOTE: Canadian teams cannot qualify through MLS):
      1. The winner of the 2016 and 2017 Canadian Championship (Toronto FC)

For transfers in, dates listed are when Sounders FC officially signed the players to the roster. Transactions where only the rights to the players are acquired are not listed. For transfers out, dates listed are when Sounders FC officially removed the players from its roster, not when they signed with another club. If a player later signed with another club, his new club will be noted, but the date listed here remains the one when he was officially removed from Sounders FC roster.
