Statement from the Rio Grande Valley FC
EDINBURG, Texas - Due to the escalating concerns over the coronavirus spreading across the country, the United Soccer League announced today the decision to suspend the 2020 season for a minimum of 30 days. As an organization, we completely support the decision made as the health and safety of our fans, staff and players have always been our priority.
"Our primary concern is the safety and welfare of our fans, players, employees and staff. Like everything else going on, this is a preventive measure and we are happy to comply," RGV FC President Ron Patel commented.
When appropriate, the league will provide additional updates on the continuation of the 2020 Championship season and very much appreciate the continued support of the Toros and USL Championship fans across the country.
