The Rapids had one new staff member test positive for COVID-19 and the league is taking no chances with the match given a series of positive tests had postponed the club’s last two matches.

In total, three Rapids players and 12 staff members have now tested positive.


Following one new confirmed case of COVID-19 among the Colorado Rapids’ staff, Major League Soccer, in consultation with the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment and infectious disease experts, have postponed the match to ensure the health and safety of all players and staff.

Colorado is two points above the playoff lines and two points below LAFC as MLS has opened the postseason to all but eight teams (four in each conference).

The Rapids have played between one and three fewer matches than the field.

There has been no announced make-up date.
