Derby ? The teams are like 6hrs apart, derbys are local ... like same city or real close.

Yeah you can have rivalries but derbies are localised rivalries.

6 Hours is local in America.
Red Sox-Yankees
Bruins-Canadiens
Dodgers-Giants
Flyers-Penguins
Toronto-Montreal
Pirates-Reds
Cardinals-Cubs
all are in the 4-6 Hour range, a down in back in 1 day is logistically possible.
Compared to national Rivalries
Celtics-Lakers
Cowboys-Redskins
Cowboys-Giants
Broncos-Patriots
Texans-Colts
These are a couple days drive.

No, 6 hrs is not local. Its not a derby. Its a rivalry, but its far from a derby.

6 hour local NYCFC v NYRB is a derby. LA v Chivas was a derby. I suppose you can call Seattle v Portland and Seattle v Vancouver regional derbies in north America because it is vast but even that is pushing it. If 6 hours is local in US lets say 1 hour is local in UK that would mean Dundee v Hibernian is a derby ......... it isn't.

Yeah, to catch my local news I always look to towns six hours away to see what happening. Do it with weather too, never fails me.

Everyone in the MLS certainly does not love Atlanta United.



Maybe a little jealousy

Interesting why is the Portland-Seattle series considered a derby?

Well Brian here is what I found on the subject

Simple geographic proximity as well as frequent meetings in important games can lead to rivalries. Games between two rivals of close geographical proximity are usually called a local derby, or simply just derby (UK: /ˈdɑːrbi/; dar-bee or US: /ˈdɜːrbi/; der-bee); a sporting fixture between two teams from the same town, city or region, particularly in association football. The phrase most likely originated from The Derby, a horse race in England, founded by the 12th Earl of Derby in 1780, since at least as early as 1840 'derby' has been used as a noun in English to denote any kind of sporting contest.[1] In the United States, the term rivalry is more commonly encountered for this type of rivalry.


Atlanta and Orlando are both in the Southeast United States region.
