Major League Soccer has postponed three matches in a 24-hour space amid an increasing number of positive coronavirus tests during the league.
The MLSA postponed the match between the original Colorado Rapids and LA Galaxy on Saturday after a Rapids player tested positive for the coronavirus, adding Sunday’s Columbus Crew match against Orlando City and FC Dallas-Minnesota United to the list.
This is the fourth consecutive Rapids match to be postponed due to positive tests for COVID-19.
Twelve Colorado staff members and five players have tested positive since Sept. 24. Matches against Sporting Kansas City, Portland Timbers and LAFC were previously postponed.
The Rapids recently played on September 23, when they beat the San Jose Earthquake 5-0.
The crew match was postponed following two confirmed cases of COVID-19 between Columbus staff, and a Dallas-Minnesota delay following a confirmed positive case between the Minnesota player pool.
More information including the new date and time of the three matches will be announced at a later date.
