MLS season postponed for eight weeks

MONTREAL – Due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommendation to postpone events with more than 50 people for the next eight weeks, MLS announced Thursday that it extended the MLS regular season suspension during this period.

During this period of suspension, the Impact was set to play at Stade Saputo on April 18 and May 2, at 1pm. These games are therefore postponed to a later date.

All tickets emitted for these games will be valid and honoured on the newly determined date, including those of season-ticket holders.
