TAMPA, Fla. – The United Soccer League announced today the decision to suspend the 2020 season for a minimum of 30 days.
USL Championship intends for all teams to complete the regular season, and Birmingham Legion FC is currently working to reschedule both home games in March for a later date.
“It was very clear from our owners that the health and safety of players, fans and staff was their top priority,” said USL CEO Alec Papadakis. “In consultation with local, state and national health authorities, as well as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Department of Homeland Security, we have temporarily suspended match play for a minimum of 30 days.”
When appropriate, the league will provide additional updates on the continuation of the 2020 Championship season and very much appreciate the continued support of USL Championship fans across the country.
