Playoff Brackets Set

With their win over LA tonight, the Houston Dynamo finalized the playoff seedings. With that we have a better idea now of who the Wizards will face in the conference semifinals. Of the four wild card teams, Dallas is the 7th seed, Colorado 8th, Columbus 9th, and New York 10th. KC will play the highest of the remaining wildcard teams after the wild card round. That means that KC cannot play the Red Bulls as if they beat Dallas, as the lowest seed, they'll play LA. The Dallas-New York game is on Wednesday night, so KC will have a better idea of who they'll face after that game. Either they'll be scheduled to play FC Dallas, or they'll know they'll play the winner of Thursday's game between Colorado and Columbus.

As for when their match is, that'll likely wait until they know who they play. If they play Dallas than the game in Dallas will be on Saturday the 29th. If they play Colorado or Columbus then the away leg will be on Sunday the 30th. No matter who Sporting play, the home game at LIVESTRONG will be Wednesday 11/2.

Should KC advance, they'd host the conference finals at LIVESTRONG on Sunday 11/6.

So start planning your weekend road trip to Dallas, Colorado, or Columbus and be ready to go.
