As a solution to the corona stop, the tournament “MLS is back” was created in North America. From the beginning of July, 24 football teams competed in Florida’s Disney World for the victory and a ticket for the CONCACAF Champions League.
This all happened in a big bubble and behind closed doors, as is the case in the American basketball league. Initially, 26 teams would participate in the football tournament, but FC Dallas and Nashville SC had to immediately be absent due to some corona cases in the team. The course was similar to that of a World Cup.
Yesterday the Portland Timbers and Orlando City played the final. Home player Orlando could count on a goal from Uruguayan Mauricio Pereyra. But the Frenchman Larrys Mabiala and the Croatian Dario Zuparic both hit for the Timbers. 2-1 it was in favor of the Portland Timbers.
Laurent Ciman and his team Toronto FC were killed in the eighth finals against New York City FC.
