    Major League Soccer announced that the opening MLS is Back Tournament Group B game between FC Dallas and the Vancouver Whitecaps, originally scheduled for July 9, will be postponed to a later date.

    Vancouver had been set to arrive in Orlando for the tournament at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex on July 1. However, their journey was delayed due to two inconclusive COVID-19 tests. The tests later came back negative and the team will now depart for Orlando on Monday.
