Major League Soccer played 51 matches in 35 days at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. The MLS is Back Tournament concluded last night with a 2-1 victory by the Portland Timbers over Orlando City SC. The tournament marked the restart of the league’s milestone 25thseason and a return of professional sports. The event brought approximately 750 players and 500 MLS staff to ESPN Wide World of Sports.

Magic Kingdom showed a surprising display to celebrate last night’s between Orlando City SC and the Portland Timbers. Disney World lit the iconic Cinderella Castle in the two teams’ primary colors – Orlando City’s purple and Portland’s green. The special moment honors the successful return of professional sports and the cast members who helped make the tournament happen.

The tournament was staged with an emphasis on health and safety, with MLS players and staff following specific medical protocols, including regular testing and health screening. While adhering to these guidelines, the players spent their time outside of practices and games enjoying the Walt Disney World Golf Courses and unwinding poolside at the Walt Disney World Swan & Dolphin Hotel. The Portland Timbers even celebrated their tournament victory last night by jumping into the pool with the trophy!
