MLS is Back Tournament Info
On June 3rd, Major League Soccer and the MLS Players Association ratified a new Collective Bargaining Agreement. This will clear the way for the league to play a summer tournament in Orlando, Florida.
The tournament, which will take place at ESPN Wide World of Sports on Disney World property, will be closed to fans. Players and team staff will be tested for COVID-19, and go through various safety protocols. More details on the plans for the tournament below:
Under the current plan, teams would arrive in Orlando on June 24, then train for two weeks. After this mini-preseason, the tournament would commence with a three-game group stage followed by a single-elimination knockout round. Teams would leave Orlando immediately after being eliminated
This would keep teams in Orlando for 35 days at most instead of the league’s previous plan, which would have lasted more than 10 weeks. The timeline addresses widespread concerns from players throughout the league about extended separation from their families.
Garber said the league is still finalizing details of the Orlando tournament and declined to comment on tournament dates and broadcast plans
