Well before we think we will make it back to the MLS Cup match next November, RSL has committed to defending the first piece of hardware they won in 2009. The Charleston Battery have announced that Real Salt Lake will be taking part in the 2010 Carolina Challenge Cup and defending their 2009 championship. DC United and Toronto FC , will join RSL as they journey to Charleston for the annual tournament.
This should prove to be a good preseason trip for RSL, it is interesting to note that with the exception of 2008 the winner of the CCC has gone on to win wither the Supporter Shield, or the MLS Cup. Perhaps the start of RSL's Back to Back campaign will start in Charleston.
