Rugby ATL was five games into its inaugural season before the league made the announcement. Owner Marcus Calloway also released a statement addressing the postponement.
“As you may have seen, Major League Rugby announced that all matches are postponed for the next 30 days,” Calloway said. “The safety and welfare of our fans, our players and support staff are of our foremost concern. As we receive additional insight from the league into the rescheduling of the postponed matches, we will communicate details at that time. We appreciate your support for Rugby ATL during this unprecedented time.”
