MLS to resume season with Florida tournament starting July 8


Major League Soccer is set to resume its season with a tournament starting July 8 in Florida. The league suspended play March 12 because of the coronavirus outbreak after its teams had played just two games. The league’s 26 teams will be divided into six groups for the opening round of the tournament to be played without fans at ESPN’s Wide World of Sports complex at Walt Disney World. Sixteen teams will advance to the knockout round, with the winner earning a spot in the 2021 CONCACAF Champions League. Teams will likely resume the season in their home markets following the tournament.
