Toronto FC, Whitecaps resume full team training ahead of MLS is Back tournament


Toronto FC and the Vancouver Whitecaps resumed full team training Monday ahead of next month's MLS is Back tournament.

They join Atlanta United, Chicago Fire, Colorado Rapids, Columbus Crew, D.C. United, Houston Dynamo, Inter Miami, Los Angeles Galaxy, Nashville SC, New England Revolution, New York Red Bulls, Orlando City, Philadelphia Union and Seattle Sounders and Sporting Kansas City in holding full team sessions.

The Montreal Impact players are still training in small groups, awaiting approval to go to the next step.

The teams are preparing for returning to action at the league's World Cup-style tournament scheduled to run July 8 to Aug. 11 in the Orlando area.

The league lifted its team training moratorium on June 4, pending approval of individual club plans by local authorities and the league.

In advance of full team training, players have to complete a physical examination and pass two COVID-19 tests. Players, coaches and select staff must pass tests every other day to attend training.

Players can go inside their training centre as long as they maintain physical distancing.
