The 2020 MLS season was the 25th season of Major League Soccer (MLS), the top professional soccer league in the United States and Canada.

On March 12, 2020, the season entered a lengthy suspension due to the COVID-19 pandemic in North America, following the cancellation of several matches. On May 1, the league announced that players will be allowed to resume individual outdoor training at MLS facilities on May 6. The COVID-19 pandemic is the first interruption of regular season play since the 2001 MLS season, in which many late regular-season games were canceled due to the September 11 attacks. On June 10, MLS announced that a bracket format dubbed the "MLS is Back Tournament" would begin July 8 at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Walt Disney World, and end on August 11. The regular season resumed a day after the tournament, with MLS Cup 2020 starting on December 12, 2020.
