FC Dallas will not compete in the MLS is Back Tournament after a number of players and staff members tested positive for COVID-19, the league confirmed on Monday evening.
FCD was scheduled to open the World Cup-style event in Central Florida on Thursday, one day after the tourney kicked off. But that match, against the Vancouver Whitecaps, was postponed indefinitely over the weekend after nine players tested positive for the coronavirus. Now MLS has officially pulled the club out of the tourney altogether. The news was broken by TUDN USA’s Nico Cantor.
