Every decision we take in the framework of our return-to-play is linked to the well-being of our players, our staff, our referees and our participants.”
The Nashville SC, who was in the group, had to face the Fire of Chicago in order to start the competition, but the duel was cancelled. The Fire has also moved into the section B, where he will find the Western clubs, the Seattle Sounders, the Earthquakes of San Jose and the Vancouver Whitecaps. Chicago will start the tournament on the 14th of July against Seattle.
