Keaton Parks both gave his thoughts on the competition format, how the team is preparing and being paired with Chicago Fire, Orlando City, Inter Miami, Nashville and Philadelphia in the only six-team group in the East.

On return to play…

“We're all coming back out, like, another preseason so it's hard to tell what's going to happen, but we're all just excited. I know I'm very excited to get back on the field and play again and I'm interested to see how this tournament style turns out.”

On facing Chicago, Orlando and Philadelphia…

“I'm excited to play all of them really, but yeah Philadelphia for sure, I mean they're right down the road from us and it’s always a little more intense but I mean, obviously all three games are serious and we're hoping to get through the group stage and get to the finals.”

On lockdown vs. phased return to training…

“Nothing's the same as day to day training and playing games throughout a season so coming back and trying to get back into game shape is always difficult, and it does definitely feel like another preseason.”

On broadcast featuring produced fan audio vs. natural sounds…

“I feel like that would be weird. I've been watching some of the Bundesliga where they have that but I don't know how much I would like that or not. Growing up obviously I've played without fans for my whole life so like, I'm also used to that as well.”
