USL suspends play 30 days

The United Soccer League announced today the decision to suspend the 2020 season for a minimum of 30 days.

“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.”

Thursday’s announcement will clearly affect Louisville City FC’s upcoming road schedule. The team will not travel to face Atlanta United 2 this weekend, and will be home the following two weeks as well.

“The USL has informed us they will make every effort to reschedule games we may miss during this suspension of play,” Louisville City President Brad Estes said. “This is obviously a fluid situation, and we hope to have more updates for our fans as soon as is feasible. We will continue working with our league, local and state authorities, and our partners at ASM Global, which manages Lynn Family Stadium.”

Louisville City FC will update its web site, email list, and social channels as soon as more information is made available.
