Major League Soccer has extended the team training moratorium through, and including, Friday, March 20th. During this time, MLS players are expected to remain in each club’s respective market, and have been advised to exercise safe social distancing measures.
MLS is working with public health authorities, in collaboration with the MLS clubs, the MLS Players Association, and in consultation with the other North American professional sports leagues to finalize a protocol that would permit players to access training facilities for rehab or individual training under safe conditions during the team training moratorium.
MLS remains in close contact with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) on this continually evolving situation and will provide further updates as they become available.
The training moratorium applies to first-team trainings, reserve teams and academies.
In addition to the MLS regular season, several soccer competitions and tournaments have been postponed, including Concacaf (Olympic qualifying and Champions League) and U.S. national team events, USL Championship, Generation adidas Cup for academies and eMLS Cup.
