Major League Soccer's plan to return to play in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic is solidifying, with the league proposing a summer tournament in Orlando involving all 26 teams sources confirmed to ESPN.

The proposed competition would see players and coaches from all teams head to the ESPN Wide World of Sports complex in Orlando to begin training on June 1, with the tournament --involving matches without fans -- set to begin 3-4 weeks later.

The proposal would need to be approved by the MLS Players Association, which is currently in negotiations with MLS over salary cuts. The league's latest proposal asks for a 20% across the board cut plus other unspecified monetary concessions.

The Athletic and The Washington Post were the first to report the tournament details.
