USL sets July 11th as provisional date to return to pitch; Locomotive FC to hold news conference Friday

El Paso Locomotive FC officials announced that the USL Championship Board of Governors voted on Thursday in favor of returning to play for the 2020 season, with a provisional start date set for July 11.

“The process to get to today’s vote has been a very deliberate and thoughtful one to ensure that, first and foremost, we proceed in a manner to appropriately manage the health and safety of all concerned,” said MountainStar Sports Group President Alan Ledford.

“This decision further solidifies and demonstrates the commitment of USL Championship to our communities and to establishing itself as a premier professional soccer league. On behalf of all of us associated with Locomotive FC, we thank our fans and this community for the amazing support we’ve received during a very challenging time for us all.”

While additional information on competition format, scheduling, broadcast, and other important details will be made available in the coming weeks, it’s important to note that the league’s return to play will be conducted in strict alignment with all local and state public health guidelines.

USL HQ also remains in regular dialogue with the USL Players Association on all matters concerning player health and wellness protocols and looks forward to continuing those discussions.

“To USL supporters across the country, we are grateful for your support throughout this process and look forward to being back in action with you all soon,” league officials added.
