Speaking on ESPN, Garber said to do so may include moving the regular season into late November while hopefully keeping the single-elimination playoff format that started last season and moving the MLS Cup into December. The season’s championship game was supposed to be played in early November.
To resume, Garber said the health of everyone involved — supporters, players, employees, front office, game-day operations etc. — is the first priority. When players can get 3-4 weeks of training and the league has the guidance on getting crowds back into stadium, the season may re-launch. Though Garber said playing in empty stadiums is one idea among many being discussed.
