Typically providing a summer platform for college soccer players, USL announced on Thursday that the 2020 League Two season is canceled.

Instead of competing in a regional platform, USL will work with teams in different areas of the country to help facilitate exhibition games where it is safe by health professionals.

“The momentum our clubs have built in League Two across the country in recent years has been tremendous, and today’s announcement – while disappointing – will do nothing to alter that,” USL League Two Vice President Joel Nash, said in a press release. “We will continue to support soccer being played when and where possible in 2020 and use this time to get even stronger as a league and look forward to returning to competitive action better than ever before in 2021.”

Some teams, including Tormenta FC 2 and Reading United will attempt to play exhibition matches and bring soccer to their respective regions, provided its safe.

In addition, the 2020 Super Y League season will not open until before July 1, in light of the delay of the 2020 USL Championship and League One seasons.

“The momentum our clubs have built in League Two across the country in recent years has been tremendous, and today’s announcement – while disappointing – will do nothing to alter that,” USL League Two Vice President Joel Nash said in a release. “We will continue to support soccer being played when and where possible in 2020 and use this time to get even stronger as a league and look forward to returning to competitive action better than ever before in 2021.”
