TAMPA, Fla. – The USL announced Thursday 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.”
“To every USL supporter across the country, we continue to thank you for your support during these extraordinary circumstances,” said USL President Jake Edwards. “As always, your safety, health and wellness are our guiding light and we want to extend our support and best wishes to all the individuals and communities who have been impacted by COVID-19. We look forward to being back together again soon.”
