Slowly but surely sports have been trying to get the ball rolling to make a comeback, with the NBA starting individual workouts, MLB discussing a plan of action, as well as the NHL still deciding on a couple of options. 

MLS could be the first major sport to officially start up again. The past week has seen almost half of the teams start to allow individual workouts in their facilities while following health guidelines.

According to Washington Post’s Steve Goff, the league had proposed the idea that it could send all of the teams down to Orlando, Florida, to finish off the season this summer. Teams would be able to use the Disney Sports Complex as well as other facilitates.

All players and team staff members would be held up at a Disney resort to be quarantined when not taking part in soccer activities and would get tested regularly. 

The league also had another plan in mind that would see teams play in Dallas, Kansas City, Kan., as well as Orlando. The plan called for the season to resume in June or early July, and although they are seriously considering the newer plan, they have not completely ruled out this one. 

The plan is still being discussed and fans should get a formal announcement from the league by the end of the month. 

The league may face some problems from the players as brought up by Galaxy defender Daniel Steres when faced with the idea of being quarantined.

“You have to go to a single location and wherever that may be, there can’t be more spread of the virus there,” he said. “Then you have to put us in a hotel that’s got to be essentially locked down. You can’t have any touch with the outside world. That’s nearly impossible.”

The idea of players being quarantined away from their families for a long period of time is something that players across all major sports are hesitant to accept. However, the league has called for only a 20% cut in players pay for the season which it hoped will win players over to accept the guiltiness of the plan.
