Late this morning Major League Soccer came out and announced that the league has suspended play for 30 days. After the 30 days the league will then reassess the situation and decide whether or not to resume play.

The 30 day suspension would end on April 11th, which is currently scheduled to be a home match against LA Galaxy. This means that at a bare minimum three of the four matches Minnesota United is scheduled to play during that homestand would be cancelled or rescheduled.

MNUFC released the following statement about the decision to suspend the season.

“With the rapidly evolving situation regarding COVID-19, Minnesota United fully supports the decision by Major League Soccer to suspend the 2020 season for 30 days.”

“We as a club believe the health and safety of our community, our fans, players and staff is of the utmost importance. We will continue to work with MLS and the Minnesota Department of Health on next steps.”

“We look forward to welcoming our community and all fans and stakeholders back to Allianz Field in 2020.”

This does not give us any notes on what will happen with the affected matches but once we do have an update we will let you know.
