MLS extends match postponement another two months — Toronto Sun

Major League Soccer has extended the postponement of its matches.

The league last week announced a 30-day suspension of the season, but in accordance with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s guidance to postpone events involving more than 50 people over the next eight weeks, MLS has extended that timeline.

In a statement Thursday morning, MLS said it is focused on playing the entire 2020 season and is evaluating all options, including pushing back the end of the season and playing the MLS Cup in December, as the league did prior to the 2019 season. The league is also identifying other available dates.

Throughout this process, MLS says it will continue to prioritize the safety of fans, players, employees and partners and to coordinate with federal and local public health authorities as well as other sporting organizations.
