Coronavirus Information Report

Major League Soccer (MLS) has announced it will suspend its season for 30 days due to the concerns around the coronavirus.

In a statement, MLS Commissioner Don Garber said, “Our clubs were united today in the decision to temporarily suspend our season – based on the advice and guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC), and other public health authorities, and in the best interest of our fans, players, officials and employees. We’d like to thank our fans for their continued support during this challenging time.”

MLS’ decision follows last night’s (March 11) announcement that the NBA would be suspending the rest of their 2019-2020 season after members of the Utah Jazz tested positive for COVID-19.
