NEW YORK (AFP) — Major League Soccer (MLS) confirmed 20 positive player tests for COVID-19 ahead of next week’s start of the “MLS is Back Tournament” in Orlando.
In an update announced by the league, MLS said 18 players and six staff members received positive tests prior to travel to Orlando with 668 players tested since early June.
The league also announced that of 329 people tested on-site upon arrival in Florida, two were positive, both players who had just arrived.
No clubs or players were identified as testing positive. All teams will stay and compete inside a “bubble” at Disney World starting 8 July when Inter Miami meets Orlando City in the World Cup-style tournament opener.
