Nashville out of MLS is Back tournament after 9 players test positive for COVID 19.

A second club has withdrawn from an ongoing Major League Soccer (MLS) tournament in the US after a number of its players tested positive for COVID-19.
At least nine Nashville Soccer Club players have tested positive for the novel coronavirus since arriving in Orlando, Florida, on July 3 for the MLS is Back tournament, the club said in a statement on Thursday.
