New York Red Bulls Club Statement: March 19, 2020
We are in full support of Major League Soccer's decision to further postpone the season. We continue to work closely with MLS, United Soccer League, state and local officials, and health authorities to ensure we remain on the best course of action for fans, players, staff, and our general community.
We are following the recommendations to stay home and limit social interactions and urge our community to join us in an effort to limit the spread of COVID-19.
Major League Soccer Statement on CDC Recommendation
NEW YORK - 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.
