Clubs will each play six matches in phase one. 12 matches in phase two.

MLS plans to announce the balance of the regular season schedule by early September as the league continues to work with infectious disease experts, league and club medical personnel, and government officials in all markets.

Teams will take chartered flights, or buses, and for the majority of road trips will arrive in the host market on matchday and depart after the match later that evening.

Covid-19 Protocols vs FC Dallas

Fans will be allowed to attend matches at Toyota Stadium in a reduced capacity with no more than 5110 fans allowed at this time. In compliance with the state of Texas mask ordinance, face masks must be worn at all times while on Toyota Stadium property, including parking lots. Socially distanced seating will be in effect.

MLS continues to work closely with the league’s infectious disease advisors as well as advisors for the MLSPA on the plan for testing.  All clubs are forming testing partnerships with a local certified lab, and all players, technical staff, and essential club staff will be tested every other day, including the day before each match day.  Also, guidelines will be provided to players, coaches and essential staff to avoid the risk of contracting and spreading COVID-19 during their time away from club facilities.

  1. Kinda bummed that they are starting games at 7:30 and forcing us east siders up 15 rows up the stands so we can be in the sun longer. West side is only 6 rows. Money talks. A 8:15 start would have been better for the fans but we are lower on totem pole. Thought hard about pushing till next year but have decided to give it a go, time to face the dragon. A lot of home games, 7 of 10 meaning only 3 in the last 12? When it is cooler in Texas in Sept and Oct. Mmmmm.
    Are they still playing on honoring military before game and doing anthem?

    1. MLS Commissioner Garber says games with fans in attendance will have the anthem. I don’t know about honoring the military… if I had to guess I would lean toward no due to Covid.
