The National Independent Soccer Association Friday postponed the NISA Independent Mid-Atlantic region tournament.

The league said it was due to the outbreak of COVID-19 in Maryland and the subsequent closing of the Maryland SoccerPlex to professional sports.

NISA is reviewing proposals in adjacent counties and states to reschedule the tournament.

The Cosmos, New Amsterdam FC,  Maryland Bobcats FC and FC Baltimore Christos are slated to participate in the competition.

A decision on location and schedule will be made next week, the league said.

The Cosmos are scheduled to begin the NISA fall season on Aug. 8.
