New York City Football Club will face Atlas F.C. and Toronto FC in the inaugural edition of Leagues Cup 2023.

The highly-anticipated Concacaf competition will see 47 clubs - 18 from LIGA MX and 29 from MLS - compete in a World Cup style tournament, with three places in the 2024 Concacaf Champions League at stake.

NYCFC have been drawn alongside Atlas F.C. and Toronto FC. The Liga MX outfit are a familiar opponent to the Boys in Blue, with 2022 seeing the two teams square off in the Campeones Cup - a match in which NYCFC emerged 2-0 victors to secure the crown.

Elsewhere, the Boys in Blue will also square off against fellow MLS outfit Toronto FC. The two teams met twice last season, with both tasting victory once. A narrow 2-1 defeat at BMO Field was followed by an entertaining 5-4 victory at Citi Field in late April.
