Major League Soccer (MLS) is in an unique position to actually capitalize on COVID-19 league stoppage. With leagues in Brazil struggling to stay afloat, MLS could see an influx in top Brazilian soccer players to the league as early as this year. If something like this were to happen, MLS could rise to the top of soccer in the western hemisphere. 

With Bundesliga re-starting without fans in Germany, MLS could take what has worked and apply that to the MLS restarting plan. Starting the league in Disney World and later on moving into teams stadiums could happen. Since most revenue for teams come from game day, do not be surprised if MLS has fans back in the stadium before other leagues. 

Derek Rae, World Cup and Bundesliga commentator on FOX Sports joins the show and talks about Bundesliga restarting play and what the MLS could do as well.
