    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.
