Almost five months after battling on opening day of the 2020 MLS regular season in British Columbia, Sporting Kansas City and Vancouver Whitecaps FC will meet in a much different setting at 10 p.m. CT on Sunday.
The MLS is Back Tournament Knockout Stage presented by Audi begins in earnest this weekend, with Sporting and Vancouver locking horns in the Round of 16 at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Walt Disney World.
Now that the group stage is complete, the MLS is Back Tournament format becomes increasingly simple: win and advance, lose and go home. A single-elimination bracket will see 16 teams whittle down to a single champion crowned on Aug. 11.
Without further ado, here's how to catch every minute of the action Sunday night.
