    MLS updates Round of 16 qualification process for MLS is Back Tournament

    MLS announced a change to the Group A qualification procedure for the MLS is Back in Tournament, which kicks off in Orlando on July 8.

    The tournament group stages consists of 26 clubs spread across six groups (Groups A-F). Every group is made up of four teams, except for Group A which features a total of six teams.

    The league confirmed that the top three teams in Group A – the top half of the group’s finishers – will advance to the knockout rounds. The top two teams of the other groups will also earn automatic berths to the Round of 16. MLS regular season tiebreaking procedures will be used, if necessary.
