Major League Soccer is launching its MLS Is Back tournament in two days, and it appears to have lost one team. FC Dallas is expected to withdraw, according to soccer reporter Paul Tenorio.

Dallas was scheduled to face the Vancouver Whitecaps on July 9th, but that match was postponed over the weekend after Vancouver was delayed in arriving to Orlando. The match was rescheduled for a date to be determined later in the group stage. Dallas was slated to now open the tournament on July 15th against the Seattle Sounders in a Group B match.

Dallas had the sixth best odds coming into the tournament at DraftKings Sportsbook, installed at +1600 to win the whole thing. Dallas was installed at +300 for July 15th against Seattle, with the Sounders listed at +120 and a tie at +180.
