MLS Commissioner Letter to MLS Fans on COVID-19

The entire sports landscape is continuing to gathering information on the coronavirus and to see when it is safe to resume their season and to have fans back in the venues to see their teams in action.

On March 12, MLS would announce they would suspend the MLS Season due to the uncertainty of the virus

On Sunday, MLS Commissioner Don Garber wrote a letter to MLS Fans about the current state of the league from the virus

Dear MLS Supporters,

Like all of you, Major League Soccer continues to monitor the impact of COVID-19 (coronavirus) on the world around us. Earlier this week, we decided to take the necessary step of suspending our season for 30 days. Our league and clubs were united in our goal to protect the well-being of our fans, players, officials, employees and the general public.

We are working closely with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Public Health Agency of Canada and local public health authorities on the appropriate next steps and to plan for the resumption of the 2020 MLS season.

We are evaluating the options for rescheduling the postponed matches to a later date. Tickets already purchased for those games will be honored on the new date. In addition to the updates you will receive from MLS and your club, please check MLSsoccer.com or your team’s website for the latest news.

During this rapidly changing time, we will take every necessary precaution, and I ask you to do the same. This moment in our history transcends sport. It is a time for all of us to come together and take care of each other.

Your support has always meant everything to us, but never more so than now. I thank you and send best wishes to you and your families.

Sincerely,

Don Garber
