Cascadia Cup Trademark dispute nears end with agreement in principle between MLS and the CCC


While final ratification of the agreement is pending legal approval, both parties have agreed to a general framework that includes important provisions regarding trademark and sponsorship. The Cascadia Cup Council will own the name, logo and likeness of the trophy and no party may sell, trade, nor barter any sponsorship to the Cascadia Cup without the unanimous approval of all parties (i.e., CCC, Portland Timbers, Seattle Sounders, Vancouver Whitecaps and MLS).

Per a release from the three Supporters Groups that created the Cascadia Cup and MLS the dispute is nearly done with minor legal details still to be finalized.
