Major League Soccer Suspends Season for 30 Days

March 12, 2020 - Major League Soccer (MLS) - LA Galaxy News Release

LOS ANGELES - Major League Soccer has suspended match play for 30 days, effective immediately, as the league continues to assess the impact of COVID-19 with its medical task force and public health officials.

At the appropriate time, the league and clubs will communicate plans for the continuation of the 2020 season and update the status of league events.

"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," said MLS Commissioner Don Garber. "We'd like to thank our fans for their continued support during this challenging time."

All LA Galaxy tickets will be honored should the matches be played on a postponed date.

Additionally, in conjunction with the state of California and the California Department of Public Health, all LA Galaxy II, LA Galaxy Academy and Dignity Health Sports Park public events and activities have been postponed.

As the club receives additional information, it will be communicated with our Season Ticket Members and supporters in a timely fashion.
