N.Y. Red Bulls win finalizes the 10-team postseason field

The seeding for several teams is yet to be determined, but the 10-team field for the MLS playoffs is set.

New York clinched the final postseason berth by virtue of its 1-0 victory Thursday night against Philadelphia, so here’s who will battle for the MLS Cup regardless of the results this weekend:

Western Conference: Los Angeles Galaxy*, Sounders FC^, Real Salt Lake, FC Dallas, Colorado Rapids#

Eastern Conference: Sporting Kansas City, Philadelphia Union, Columbus Crew, Houston Dynamo, New York Red Bulls#

Seattle will have to wait until Saturday to learn whether it’s playing RSL or Dallas in the Western Conference semifinals, but coach Sigi Schmid said Thursday that he has no preference.

Do you have any thoughts on the field?

* — clinched No. 1 seed, ^ — clinched No. 2 seed, # — wild card
