Season formally cancelled; League to work with clubs on exhibition schedules, return stronger in 2021
The USL announced Thursday, April 30th, the cancellation of the 2020 USL League Two season due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The league will instead spend the upcoming weeks and months working with numerous League Two clubs in areas of the country where it is deemed safe to help facilitate regional exhibition schedules during the summer and fall months.
“The momentum our clubs have built in League Two across the country in recent years has been tremendous, and today’s announcement, while disappointing, will do nothing to alter that,” said USL League Two Vice President Joel Nash. “We will continue to support soccer being played when and where possible in 2020 and use this time to get even stronger as a league and look forward to returning to competitive action better than ever before in 2021.”
“While we are disappointed that our season has been negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, KVFC strongly supports the League’s leadership and the decision to cancel the 2020 season,” said Marcus Dudley, General Manager of Kaw Valley FC. “KVFC remains dedicated to maximizing the development of our players and staff while providing a safe, quality, competitive, and family-friendly environment for our members and supporters. We intend to remain actively engaged in our community and we will continue to explore a variety of opportunities to play meaningful matches this summer if the circumstances allow for such activities,” said Dudley.
