USL League One governors approve return to play

The USL League One has set a provisional start date of July 18 after its Board of Governors voted on Friday in favor of returning to play for the 2020 season.

The third division league is in its second season. It operated 10 teams in 2019 and expanded to 12 teams for 2020. It added the Union Omaha and two MLS second teams, Fort Lauderdale CF (Inter Miami) and Revolution II (New England), and the Lansing Ignite folded. The 2020 season had not yet begun when the coronavirus pandemic shut everything down.

Six teams are MLS second teams and a seventh, Forward Madison FC, is affiliated with the Chicago Fire.

No details were made available on the competition format, scheduling and broadcast plans. USL League One games are streamed on ESPN+.
