NEW YORK – Major League Soccer Friday extended the team training moratorium through, and including, Friday, March 27, due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

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.

Team training facilities currently can only be accessed for physical therapy purposes at the direction of club medical staff to ensure adherence to safety protocols.

MLS remains in close contact with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Public Health Agency of Canada on this continually evolving situation and will provide further updates as they become available.
