MLS and USL extend team training moratorium

MLS extended the team training moratorium three more weeks, through April 24.  Training facilities remain closed to all players and staff around the league 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.

MLS will continue to review individual requests by players to relocate to another market by car, taking into account the totality of a player’s situation. Many of the players who have moved are young Homegrown players who were in residency with their MLS teams.

As an example, 17-year-old Sporting Kansas City attacker Gianluca Busio was allowed to drive from Kansas City to his family home in North Carolina.

-- The United Soccer League extended its training moratorium for USL Championship and League One clubs through April 19.

In the meantime, the USL and its board of governors will assess the temporary suspension timeline.
