MLS Statement (updated March 19):

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.

Club statement below:

With the rapidly evolving situation regarding COVID-19, Minnesota United fully supports the decisions made by Major League Soccer.

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.

All tickets — whether season, group, premium or individual — that have already been purchased for any postponed home game will be honored when the games have been rescheduled. We will keep you updated regarding any changes to our approach, as we are continuing to navigate the evolving situation.
