MLS Combine 2018: All You Need to Know

The 2018 adidas MLS Player Combine will feature top collegiate players from across the country showcasing their talents in front of representatives from all 23 MLS clubs.  All matches will be played on the game field at Orlando City Stadium, home of the Orlando City SC from January 11-17.
 
The invited players have been divided into four teams: Team X, Team Predator, Team Tango, and Team Nemeziz, and every team will play one game on each of the three match days for a total of three games per team.

All games will be open to the public (free admission, no ticket required) with gates opening for both fans and media one hour before the start of the day’s first match.  For fans following from afar, all six Combine matches will be streamed live on MLSsoccer.com and the MLS YouTube Channel.
