MLS Preseason Set

By Sean McCaffery, February 13, 2021

The regular season is planned as of now for April 17 and the teams will begin to kick it on the 1st as players report for a week of quarantine, testing etc. as camp gets rolling on the 8th of  March. I am sure many will choose or have it chosen for them to begin their 7 days in advance of the first. Those who wind up doing so are able to carry out individual training during that time or with the team in the set 7 days so long as all guidelines have been followed and carried out. Of course no members of the technical or coaching staffs are to be present at training for any group sessions in advance of the first. Odd that other staff members are not ruled out?

CCL Round of 16: A quartet of MLS sides are set for these games set to run from April 6-17, those being Atlanta, Crew, Union & Timbers. As these are not league games, players may be required to come in before Feb. 24 to begin their quarantine and do group activities ahead of Mar. 3, the same staffers are not to be at such sessions pre Feb. 24.
