Players offer tribute to fans for virtual support during MLS is Back Tournament

As the MLS is Back Tournament comes to a close, players have a simple message to fans: Thank you. 

Even though all 51 games in Orlando were played without supporters in attendance, they were very much part of the action. Clubs held virtual watch parties and drive-in events, while the virtual video boards in-stadium provided no shortage of memorable moments. Families, celebrities and even pets (you read that right) made an appearance.

The days of chants, celebrations and pre-match tifos will eventually return, but for now watch what MLS players had to say amid constraints caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
