Royal Roundup: RSL updates health & safety protocols

Ochoa makes provisional roster, Columbus re-brand angers Crew fans, Manchester City win EPL and more.

MLS: San Jose Earthquakes at Real Salt Lake Jeffrey Swinger-USA TODAY Sports

“Let’s give old Tennessee credit for music, as they play it up in Nashville every day. Let’s give old Tennessee credit for music, as they play it in that old hillbilly way.” - Carl Perkins

2020 would have been Real Salt Lake’s first game vs newcomers Nashville FC, but the pandemic schedule corrections prevented that match; thus our first ever game facing them will be on in their 2nd year.

Note that the health and safety protocols have been updated starting with this game. Masks are strongly recommended, but will not be required (based on state guidelines). Attendance is still capped at 10,000
