The aptly-named #MLSisBack Tournament (yep) kicks off June 8, with all 26 teams traveling to the ESPN Wide World Of Sports complex in Orlando, Florida to compete.
The tournament is formated like the World Cup, Groups B through F consist of four teams each, while Group A includes six teams. Teams will play each of the other teams in their group (aside from Group A, where each team will still only play three matches). As is standard, a win is worth three points, a draw is worth one, and a loss is worth zero. The top two sides from each group will advance, as well as the four best third-placed finishers. With all that out of the way, which teams do you think will advance to the knockout stage? Make your picks below and watch for the results to be published before the tournament kicks off.
