MLS extends season suspension until at least May

Major League Soccer has extended the postponement of league action for a further two months in accordance with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. 

This means league action will not resume at least until May 10, as the country struggles to contain the spread of the virus. 

"In accordance with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s guidance to postpone events involving more than 50 people over the next eight weeks, Major League Soccer has extended the postponement of its matches during this period of time,"

"MLS remains focused on playing the entire 2020 season and is evaluating all options, including pushing back the end of the season and playing MLS Cup in December, as the league did prior to the 2019 season,"

"The league is also identifying other available dates. Throughout this process, MLS will continue to prioritize the safety of our fans, players, employees, and partners and to coordinate with federal and local public health authorities as well as other sporting organizations," the statement added.

MLS' move comes on the same day the English Premier League extended their suspension for another three weeks and is set to resume on April 30th.

MLS moved to suspend the league for 30 days last week, due to the spread of COVID-19.
