MLS will resume in Florida

The league’s 26 teams will be split into six groups for the opening round of the tournament played without fans at ESPN’s Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World.

Before the league suspended play due to the coronavirus outbreak on March 12, teams had only played two games to start the season.

While in Florida, the players will be sequestered in a resort with a rigorous test protocol.

With multiple games per day played over 16 consecutive days, each team will have three group matches. Group matches will count towards standings for the regular season.

According to The Guardian, Sixteen teams advance to the knockout round, with the winner earning a spot in the Concacaf Champions League in 2021.

Following the tournament, the teams will resume the season in their home markets.

Teams will start arriving for the training on 24th June. Those who have already been in the market training will arrive no later than seven days before their first match.
