Holy moly there are a lot of European competitions lol

There is baseball, and occasionally there are other things of note

And then in the summer a lot of players end up competing with their national teams in either tournaments or friendlies. Not much time off for a lot of them.

There are a lot of competitions on every continent like this. You just don't here near as much about them as you doing the ones in Europe.

 

But most every soccer federation has their leagues, Cups, and multi nation tournaments.

 

For example lets just look at the US.

 

MLS and two professional leagues below that level.

MLS vs Liga MX Leagues Cup

MLS vs Liga MX Campeones Cup

US Open Cup

 

Then for players on the USMNT:

Nations League

WC Qualifying

Gold Cup

Olympic Qualifying

 

Soccer is intensely grueling. No other sport has anything close to this

If Man U pulls off the upset, they’ll clinch a spot in next season’s Europa League, which….meh, if competing in UEFA’s version of the NIT is worth the squeeze, then ok. If they lose, they end up in Conference League, which is European soccer’s answer to the CBI. At that point, if I’m the players and especially ten Hag, I say no thanks, I’d rather have the rest and extra training opportunities, not to mention reducing injury risk, that might help us earn our way back into the UCL.


The team won't pass up the money those European games bring, even if it's the NIT.
