Nashville SC, which was set to arrive to Central Florida on Wednesday to oblige with MLS protocol, reportedly postponed its flight and arrival after having one player test positive for COVID-19.
The total figure of teams across the entire league currently checked into the MLS base hotel is 8.
Inter Miami opens the MLS is Back Tournament with a showdown against Orlando City in the first edition of the Sunshine Clasico on July 8. The Fire also play their first game that day, taking on Nashville SC.
