Following the lead of the NBA, the USL Championship has suspended the 2020 season for the next 30 days until further notice.

“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 a statement. “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.”

San Antonio FC was set to resume play on Saturday when they traveled to Colorado Springs to face the Switchbacks.

With other soccer players in England testing positive for Covid-19, the league has made the decision to suspend play for 30 days.
