MLS clubs set to move into second phase of voluntary training

Major League Soccer has allowed teams to begin to use outdoor team training fields for small group training sessions.

Like the individual training that began on May 6, these sessions are voluntary, and they must be in compliance with league health and safety protocols and comply with local public health official or government policies.

The small group activities must be done while maintaining physical distancing protocols.

The Chicago Fire and D.C. United were allowed to begin voluntary individual workouts Friday, leaving the San Jose Earthquakes as the only team not officially cleared to begin training at all.

Fire players will begin voluntary individual workouts at SeatGeek Stadium in Bridgeview, Illinois. D.C. United players will work out Segra Field, home of United’s USL affiliate Loudoun United, in Leesburg, Virginia.

The moratorium on full team training remains in place through Monday.
