  • MLS Cup 2008, the 13th edition of Major League Soccer's championship match, was played between the Columbus Crew and the New York Red Bulls to decide the champion of the 2008 season. The final was played at The Home Depot Center in Carson, California on November 23, 2008. Columbus won 3–1 with goals from Alejandro Moreno, Chad Marshall, and Frankie Hejduk — all of which were assisted by Guillermo Barros Schelotto. Schelotto was named MVP of the final, matching his MVP award for the regular season. The Crew became the fourth club in league history to win the MLS Cup and the Supporters' Shield in the same season, following D.C. United, the Kansas City Wizards, and the Los Angeles Galaxy. To date it is the only championship to match two Eastern Conference teams against each other, and the first time since the inaugural title game that both teams made their MLS Cup debut. Both the participants entered the CONCACAF Champions League, with winners Columbus Crew being seeded directly into the group stage and runners-up New York Red Bulls entering at the preliminary round.
