Things aren’t looking good for the Chicago Fire’s MLS is Back opener against Nashville SC. With reports emerging that Nashville had five players test positive for COVID-19, ESPN’s Stefano Fusaro says it’s likely the July 8 match will be pushed back.

The Fire just postponed a scheduled news conference this morning, where Raphael Wicky, Francisco Calvo and Robert Berić were supposed to talk to the media ahead of the match.

The Fire are planning to hold a Drive-In watch party for the match at Soldier Field, so clearly that could be on hold, as well. We’ll let you know more as we learn it.
