Major League Soccer (“MLS”) has remained agile in the wake of COVID-19, and now the league is giving soccer fans something to look forward to this summer with the MLS Is Back Tournament. This unique World Cup-style tournament will take place in Orlando, FL, from July 8 to August 11.

The matchups for all 26 teams for this comeback tournament were officially selected on June 11 during a virtual drawing that allowed fans to follow along in the fun. President and Deputy Commissioner Mark Abbott explained the different phases of the draft process for viewers.

EisnerAmper is the league’s independent auditor, my fellow audit team members Brett Vinokur and Chris Ottersen were proud to have observed this innovative draft  and wish all of the teams luck in Orlando.
