MLS allows teams to start small-group training, a step toward resuming play

This is the the first time players from Orlando City and the 25 other teams in the league have been allowed to train together since the league suspended play on March 12 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The announcement comes amid reported negotiations for the league to hold a return-to-play tournament at ESPN Wide World of Sports on Disney World property in Orlando.

Clubs will be required to submit a detailed training plan that fits within the league’s health and safety protocol before hosting any small group training sessions. Additionally, these sessions will be voluntary for all players.
