SAN ANTONIO – After months of no sports, San Antonio FC is gearing up to return to the pitch.
The USL Championship Board of Governors today voted in favor of returning to play for the 2020 season, with a provisional start date set for July 11. Information on competition format, scheduling, broadcast, and other important details will be made available in the coming weeks but the league says return to play will be conducted in strict alignment with all local and state public health guidelines.
“After several months of uncertainty for fans, staff, coaches, and players, we are excited to have the opportunity to prepare for the return of USL Championship soccer this summer,” said SAFC Managing Director Tim Holt. “Our club has continued to prepare for this eventuality during the hiatus, and we are focused on delivering more memorable moments on and off the field during the 2020 season. We look forward to sharing more details on the season once they are confirmed in the period ahead.”
SAFC played just one game of the 2020 season, a win over Real Monarchs SLC on March 7.
