NEW YORK – Major League Soccer Wednesday extended the team training moratorium through, and including, Friday, April 3 due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

MLS training facilities remain closed to all players and staff with the exception of players requiring medical treatment or rehabilitation, under the direction of the team medical staff, that cannot be performed from the safety of their residence, the league said.

While MLS players are expected to remain in each club’s respective market, MLS will review individual requests by players to relocate to another market by car, taking into account the player’s situation.

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