The United Soccer League announced today, following approval from the USL Championship’s Board of Governors, that the previously announced 30-day temporary suspension of play in the Championship will be extended to align with recent guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on restricting public gatherings of 50 or more people through Sunday, May 10.
To every USL Championship supporter across the country, we want to thank you for your patience and understanding during these extraordinary circumstances. As always, your safety, health and wellness are our top priority. We will continue to monitor ongoing events, receive guidance from local, state and national health authorities, and participate in a national task force comprised of other professional sports leagues and organizations from around the country. We also 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 in action again soon.
More information, including ticket policies, about Tacoma Defiance’s affected matches will be announced in the very near future. Any home matches that occur while play is suspended will be rescheduled for a later date.
Additional information on COVID-19, including health tips, news updates and other resources, is available via the Pierce County Health Department.
