Major League Soccer is holding an esports tournament featuring 32 pro soccer players and FIFA 20 esports pros, in light of the suspended 2020 season. Proceeds from the match will benefit Feeding America and Food Banks Canada. Donations will be made to both organizations after each weekend of play.
The tournament will see Sixteen MLS teams, with one pro player from each of those teams paired with an esports competitor. Each weekend, four teams will face off in two-leg, single elimination tournaments. The top clubs, based on aggregate goals, will face off in a single match to see which ends up at the grand final in May.
Participants will play from their respective homes and viewers can catch the match on the MLS partner channels Fox Sports 1 and Fox Deportes. Coca-Cola and PlayStation are broadcast partners, as well.
