Nashville SC will not play Wednesday against Chicago Fire FC on the opening night of the MLS is Back Tournament in Orlando.
Major League Soccer confirmed Tuesday five of Nashville's players have tested positive for the coronavirus. Two cases were confirmed Sunday, and three more were confirmed Monday evening. Nashville SC confirmed to The Tennessean on Tuesday all players are asymptomatic and have been relocated to the "isolation wing" of the Swan and Dolphin Resort on the campus of Walt Disney World, where MLS clubs are stationed for the tournament.
MLS also confirmed Tuesday four additional Nashville players are awaiting test results. Those players, like the rest of the club, are quarantining in their hotel rooms.
The club's total delegation inside the Orlando bubble is 45 members — club staff, coaches and players.
Nashville has not conducted any physical team activities since its last training session June 30 because of a player who reportedly tested positive prior to leaving for Orlando. That forced the club to cancel its Wednesday travel plans. Because of delayed test results, Nashville was not able to travel to Orlando until Friday afternoon.
Wednesday's match would have marked four months since Nashville faced the Portland Timbers, its last match before the coronavirus pandemic suspended MLS action.
