TAMPA, Fla. – The USL Championship announced today the postponement of this week’s two regular season contests involving Oakland Roots SC against Phoenix Rising FC on Wednesday night and Tacoma Defiance on Saturday night.
The decision has been made for the health and safety of all parties after multiple persons on the Roots SC covered persons list tested positive for COVID-19 following a second round of testing on Monday at Oakland’s facilities. The affected individuals have been immediately isolated at home and are recovering in good spirits under the care of team physicians and infectious disease experts. All league, local and state health and wellness protocols continue to be followed.
Oakland Roots will now face Phoenix on August 25 and Tacoma on September 15, with both contests set to take place at Las Positas College.
