Nashville SC is going to have to wait another year to play in the MLS.

The Tennessee-based team, which made their MLS debut in February, announced that they have decided to withdraw from the MLS Is Back tournament due to nine players contracting the coronavirus while preparing for the league’s return.

“Due to the number of positive tests, the club has been unable to train since arriving in Orlando and would not be able to play matches,” said MLS commissioner Don Garber.

They become the second club forced to miss the tournament due to COVID-19. The tournament, which began on Thursday when the Philadelphia Union beat New York City FC 1-0, is now down to 24 clubs.
